Door Drama

November 12th, 2012

So it has taken approximately 3.5 months, 6 tester paint pots, and 500 million paint swatches, but people, we have a new front door color!

Who knew it would be so hard to pick a freaking color!  {Not me, that’s for sure.} You all know I was ready to pull the trigger on that gorgeous turquoise color, then Mr. vB had to come along and shut that down..

Then I was all gung-ho about this cool navy color I picked…

But upon further inspection, it seemed to blend with the roof too much and I wanted a serious pop of color!

I got so frustrated that I was throwing anything at the door to see what would stick..seriously!

What a HOT mess..

Thankfully at this point the storm door was no longer attached to the front of the house, so no one could see the madness that was going on.

But I’m pleased to report that Mr. vB and I {finally} came to an agreement on a color and  I’m putting the final coats on the storm door as we speak.  Then I hope to get started painting the main door later this week.

Here’s a sneak peek!

A Much Needed Face-Lift

March 6th, 2012

Hey ya’ll..

Remember waaaa-yyyy back when I posted about our 2011 Home DIY Resolutions??

Resolution 9 was to fix the leak in the porch soffit, repaint the railings and trim, and fix the cement stairs.

It took a year to get around to it, but I’m exciited to report that the front exterior finally got that much needed face lift.

Here’s the before:

It was really starting to look a bit run down and quite frankly EMBARASSING!!

During the Demo:

During the rebuild:

And it’s FINISHED!

Nice, right?  Now I just need to work on the flower beds and our Curb Appeal should be complete!

Thanks to Nick Hardesty of Hardesty Construction for making the transformation happen.
