Like the doors, for example.
Our hallway when we bought the house 1.5 years ago.
We began installing new doors (a long and sometimes painful process, as evidenced in this post) 11 months ago. That's almost an entire year ago.
And while we've gotten quite a few of them actually cut down to size and installed over the past year, they've remained in their factory-primed state the entire time - usually while all the trimwork and walls and even ceilings were painted around them.
But no more.
Yup, this past weekend I spent the entire day - noon until 9pm, folks - painting these suckers (and before anyone starts in on why Tom wasn't helping me paint, let me just say that he did his part in being productive by doing things I didn't want to do - like shoveling and cooking. Yeah, he's awesome.).
And the result?
Big difference, eh?
And while we're on the subject of the hallway, I figured it was time to show you guys a few other updates we've done to it.
We printed out some black and white photos from our wedding and framed them in a 11x17" white frame from Target and gave them a prominent place in the hallway. We love it because you can see them as soon as you step in the front door.
Our other mini-update on our quest to feather our nest, was to add a fun organizational hanging-thing in the hallway, right outside the office. It fit the space perfectly, and here we display any cards we receive, invitations, and some photos for a while before new ones come in and the old ones either get tossed or put away in storage. I know, I know - I don't want to be a hoarder, but some of them are just too cute to throw away!
So now our newly-painted bright white doors with their pretty hardware don't mock me anymore.
Well, except for the bathroom door. It hasn't been replaced yet.
But I'll save that one for another day.
Anyone else a member of the Procrastinator's Club (with slogan "I'll Do It Tomorrow...")? Is there anything that you've been putting off doing? Anything that you're proud to have finally tackled?
