Greetings Friends! This past week I had a little ah hah moment, right in my living room. Maybe you can relate--you know, those places in our home we walk by daily and gradually fail to notice. Sometimes all that's needed is a different perspective...
My friend Carly and I meet weekly to discuss our book study, dish and pray. We usually sit across the room from each other but the last time we met, I sat next to her as we looked at some photos. The change in seating gave me a completely different perspective and when my eyes landed on the front door, I was caught off guard. I actually blurted out, "Ugh, that looks icky!" Icky is not a word I typically use and obviously I see my front door multiple times every single day but evidently I'd grown too used to it. Despite my eye for detail for the rest of the room, I'd overlooked the front door still had its original paint and that it was not complementary to the updated gray walls. It was now glaringly obvious--see what I mean? So guess what I did the following Saturday? I was able to refresh my front door in one afternoon by following these easy steps:
1. Sand lightly.
2. Tape and then paint around hardware, windows and trim.
3. Paint the rest of the door and repeat, if needed. This was before my second and final coat.
Voila! I only wish I'd done it sooner! I used Behr Premium Plus in Tahitian Sky. It reminds me of those pretty little Tiffany jewelry boxes :) Have you had a change in perspective lately?
