I have been wanting new interior doors,
but to tell you the truth . . . it is just
too much to put on my sweetie at the moment.
If he were retired too,
I would build a fire under him,
but he puts in so many hours at work,
he just doesn't need that big of a project,
There is one big thing that I have learned
in decorating . . .
and that is, if you want something to disappear,
make it stand out.
So I decided to take this door
and make it a focal point.
First I took some old picture frames,
that I already had in the trunk of my car.
I meant to donate them to a local art club,last week, and forgot.
Now I'm re-purosing them,
for a little bit of trim on my door.
I mapped out the space that I would need, on the door.
Drew center lines and measured the door and my picture frames.
Then I drew and painted these letters on the door.
I removed the glass,
and pre-drilled four small holes in each frame.
This made it easy to nail the frames onto the door
and not split the wood.
Next I painted the frames,
before nailing them to the door.
This saved a lot of taping.
After all the frames where nailed over the painted letters and background,
I painted the door and the trim around it.
Well, there it is.
It is not the new door that I wanted,
but in a way, it is new.
Most of all it is fresh and clean, and a very nice change.
I think I like it.
