I’ve been slacking in my blog life but swearsies, I’ve been working hard on the home front. Err, the house front. You know what I mean. Anyway, I’ve been busting my butt for the last few weeks. Weeks. Can I show you what I’ve been up to during nap time?
Let’s revisit to the coat closet in the living room, ok?
As you know, I painted the door my favorite color of all, Zinc by Martha Stewart. Then it sat there like this for oh, 4ish months:
Then, I slapped two coats of primer on the oak trim and it looked like so:
YAY!!! Looks so fresh! So clean!
But if you get up close…
and like this:
The trim in our house is just plain crap. I overcame my fear of using the caulk gun and got to work. I caulked it, added three coats of fresh white paint over top, plus a round of touchups and now it looks like this!
No more ugly gaps! (Or rather, they are mostly minimized):
Of course, I added some bling by switching out those nasty brassy hinges too!
Are you asking yourself, it took her weeks to do ONE door?
The answer is yes! Go me!
