Front Door Project

This weekend was full of fun home improvement projects -- like this one.

The front door needed a fresh coat of paint and the bathtub in the boys' bathroom needed a new caulk job. So...while I crouched in the tub (there's really not a lot of room to work in a bathtub, ya know?), my wife scraped old paint of the door. That was Saturday.

It's Sunday and here's the 'before' shot of the door.

And ... a few hours later, it looked like this.

A little paint makes a huge difference.

I'm not crazy about all the extra work, but it's really not so bad once you get started. It's that nudge, push, or shove that is needed to get the momentum going. When you're done, you say, "Gee, that wasn't so bad. I should have done that weeks ago."
