Happy Monday y'all...Hope you had a wonderful weekend...ours here in Missouri was COOL and RAINY...typical fall weather...I think the cooler temps and rain has started a little EARLY this year but that has not detoured me from getting a few things done around the house...

You might remember how I posted a while back about gearing up to paint the house exterior...well, I didn't get that done (we are going to have a hire a professional after all for that)...BUT I did get one job done...THE DOOR IS BLUE NO MORE...

still needs one more coat, but it's gotta stop raining first it is a BRIGHT, SHINY, WELCOMING RED...and just in time for fall...don't you just love it?  I do!!!

a little peak at the BEFORE...

...well, sort of...I forgot to take a pic BEFORE I started sanding...I HATE when I do that!  I am always forgetting my before shots...I guess I just get in too much of a HURRY to get things done...

...notice what color it was before it was blue?...Yes, that's right, it was...RED...I guess at one time this old house had a classic red door thingy going on...did you also notice the pediment (architectural detailing) around the door...isn't it just absolutely GORGEOUS?..just one of the many things about this old house I fell in LOVE with...

What a HUGE improvement!!!

I'm joining these linky parties.  I would love it if you would stop by each of these fabulous parties and see what everyone's up to.

Have a fabulous day!!!

NOTE:  I was asked by an anonymous commenter for the brand and color I chose for this door.  I was going to include those details when publishing this post but my mind drew a blank so I left it out.  However, for all of you who are interested, it is Apple-a-Day by Olympic Paints in semi-gloss.  I got it at Lowe's.  It does look pinkish in color in the can and when applying it, but it does dry a nice deep red.


  1. I love your red door. We painted ours Red last Nov. and have loved it everyday!!!!!

  2. I just painted my door red too! I love it. Great looks fantastic!!

  3. Lovely door :) pops up even more in red!

  4. Lovely! What color/brand paint did you use?

  5. It makes a wonderful statement, and I also love the pediment.

  6. Red she said. Love, love, love it! Thank you so much for linking up.

  7. Thank you for the color information!
