Home Sweat Home: The little things

It probably comes as no surprise to you, but I have a handful of projects started. Half-completed, if you will. I can’t seem to bring myself to finish them before diving into something new and exciting. This is certainly true for the guest bathroom¬†as well as many other projects I haven’t bothered to show you (until tomorrow!). I crave big room “reveals” but I’ve come to realize that everything takes so much time and so many little details that a big reveal is not in the cards (nor in my photography skills).¬†Although I consider any progress as progress (no matter how erratic), I’m trying to buckle down and cross a few of these half done projects off of my To Dos. This post is going to put you to sleep if you read it after lunch.

One of “the little things” is a single door frame in the kitchen. We’ve lived with it partially painted for months. You remember the kitchen pantry (the door on the left):

I know, it *looks* complete but it wasn’t. Actually, neither is the garage door but that requires moving the fridge and uncovering what lurks behind it. I’m saving that for when I’m braver and when someone can help me move the dang thing.

So, I finally, finally finished painting the pantry door. The trim took two coats of primer, one round of caulking, three coats of paint and one round of touchups. The door took two coats of paint (Martha Stewart’s Zinc) and new hinges swapped in. Take a look see!

After this picture was taken, I even took 5 seconds to screw the light switch plate back in.

Hooray for the little things, right?

  1. You are not boring. I love to see what you are doing. Give yourself a pat on the back because not only did you do the work in the kitchen, but you had to work around living life and baby. Then you had to send out the blog. Lots of hours. Good work thecandace. ::)) lv mamap
