My favorite thing to do in the entire world is work on my house or for that matter any house belonging to friends, family, or stranger. Lol! I feel it very rewarding to take an ugly duckling and give it love and attention to give it back some dignity. My latest project is on a quiet street in the historic district downtown. I have been working very hard on giving the home its dignity back, thus neglecting my blog. I hope you will enjoy the transforming pictures I have taken during the project. I am still not finished, but well on my way.
The door originally was white with the panes painted black. I painted the door a solid color called Tempe Star by Sherwin Williams. The historic plaque was added in bronze stating that it is listed in historical society as being the Preston Lane House. I was happier with the look after I painted the screen door the same as the door color and added oil rubbed bronze hardware. I know there is still a lot to do, but it is looking happier and cozier.
