As of this morning…..

I ama  ONE job, full-time employee with a great benefits package, kind of blogger girl.

Thanks for sticking around.

And guess what?

My schedule will allow me the time to share great projects, deals and steals or whatever is going on like I used to!

Double Whoop Whoop!

So, I might as well start now.

With my painted french door transformation in this post.

I have not been blogging peoplebut I have still been busy. ; )

Like the difference?

I chose to paint rather than stain because of the amount of damage to both doors.

I had to repair some of the wood with wood filler, sand it down and then used the “perfect red” to finish it off. It is the same color that I used on my front door as well as a ton of other projects. Don’t forget that you can search my posts in the right sidebar. Type in ” Perfect Red” and see how many fun projects pop up. It is a great way to catch up if you are a new reader……

It is obvious that I love this red.

I have one set of doors left to go.

And now I have time to take you guys along with me.

I have missed chatting with ya‘.

I will share exactly what products I used this weekend, when I finish my second set of doors.

Such an easy way to get new french doors.

This painted french door transformation even surprised me.

I thought that my tired, water damaged, sun-beaten french doors were almost beyond help.

I should know better!

Do you have a door that could be transformed?

A set of doors?

Like this transformation?

I would love to know!



PS. Thank you for so many emails and prayers as you have followed along in this job search. I have felt them and appreciated your support more than you could ever know. XO!

    Congratulations on the new job! I love your “perfect red” doors. I too just found the “perfect red” for my front and back doors. I have been wanting to paint them red for a while but hubby wasn’t too keen on it. So one day while he was working an extra long day I painted them…lol…he came home after dark and said he drove around the neighborhood for a bit trying to find our house…lol…he now loves my red doors!

    I have a set of French doors to the deck and a front door to redo in Red! How did you finally make the right selection, there are so many different Red shades? I am leaning towards a Burgandy to complement the light gray, white trim and black shutters on my house. What brand of paint and what preparation did you use before painting? Love your color and the wreaths are so complementary!!

    Love it! I MUST paint my front door and my French doors in the back your “Perfect Red” – as soon as my hubby goes back to work bc he has no faith in my painting abilities (messed up once and can never live it down).
