Happy Groundhog's day!!!!
(I did start this blog post yesterday)
I don't care what Phil says, I am optimistic and excited about springs arrival.
Hey, it's already February.. we're in the home stretch now!!!
We've got so many things planned ~ Gardens to rearrange, new shrubbery to plant, I want to build a stone patio in the back yard, revamp the deck and most of all... I can't wait to play on the new paddle board.
The first windless 60 degree day ~ I am outta here!
Meanwhile... I've have plenty of inside projects to keep my busy during this cold season.
I finished another project yesterday.. and I gotta tell ya, I'm pretty happy with it.
I've seen this idea all over pinterest and many of my facebook friends have sent me photos of this project as well ~ I think that they know me pretty well!
This is the idea that I copied. I'm sure you all have seen it before.
It just so happens that I had an extra set of french doors in the basement.
Well... sort've extra, I stole it from the laundry room.
I liked the color of the door so I left it alone. However, I did take the sander to it and rough it up a bit.
As you can probably see, there are two windows missing.
Way back when we had a pool table in the basement the windows got broken by a pool stick.
I picked up some hooks from Lowes and some pretty 12x 12 paper and double sided tape at Michaels .
I just lined the paper up on the window, folded the access and then trimmed it off.
Once I choose the photos that I wanted to use, I used the double sided tape to adhere them to the paper
and then used the tape again to attach the paper to the glass.
I skipped three of the top windows..
the two broken ones and one at the opposite end.
I'm a little OCD about things lining up.
I was multitasking.. having dinner while working on the door.
I attached chipboard letters to the blank windows
and used clothes pins to hang some old photos from them.
Here it is all done and hanging on the newly repainted wall.
I told you that I decided against that dark teal paint..
the lighter shade looks so much better,
don't ya think.
Now I just have to put the last coat of paint on the steps
and it's completely done.
I might get to it tonight when I get finished with my other chores.
Maybe! : )
Have a great day everyone
