Birthday Paint

You know you’re a new home-owner with a tight budget when your husband asks you what you want for your birthday and you ask if we can do some house projects.

We have most of our house in a very livable, even enjoyable state, except our open living and dining rooms. It is an area away from the areas we use the most, but unfortunately it is our main entry way to the house. So, while I get excited to show family and friends the rest of the house, they enter into an area that is used to house wedding presents we haven’t found a place for yet, a dining room table that never gets used, and a couch that needs to be re-covered.

So, the hubby and I went shopping for paint and tried out a couple of colors and luckily he had two days off during the week and while I worked I received this sweet text picture.

The painting has started at the Glaze household

And, in those two days, my wonderful husband turned this…

I love our green door, just was so washed out before

note: that is blue painters tape, not a blue border on the trim 🙂

into this…

not quite done here, but the door looks so good with the new paint

It’s amazing what a little paint can do.

Can’t wait for the rest of it to fall into place!
