The Color I Chose for My Front Doors.

Hi all,  I hope you had a great Memorial Day. Several weeks ago I did a post on Front Door Inspiration. You can see it here. And at that time I was trying to decide what color I wanted to paint my front doors. Well the jury is in and the color I chose was.......

sorry fuzzy pic
 Oriental Eggplant by Behr. You can see it here. I love, love, love the color. This shot was taken about 5 minutes or so after I finished painting. And shortly after that it started to rain, and it rained most of the night. I guess I don't have to tell you what happened to my amazingly beautiful, professional looking paint job! It was ruined, and I was devastated. Now I would have to repaint the doors all over again. That incident took the wind right out of my sails and until now, I really haven't had the motivation to finish the project. But a few days ago I mustered up some spizzerinctum and made a conscience decision to complete this project. I asked Hubby to sand the doors. And later this week I will repaint them, add wreaths, spruce up the area a bit; and voila, I will be back in business before summer.

Have you had any projects that went haywire recently?



  1. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about your painting project. It's unfortunate that you have to do the work all over again. I do love the eggplant color, though so I can't wait to see how everything turns out.

  2. Thanks Dee, I am not looking forward to repainting again, but this is one project that I am looking forward to scratching off my to do list. Have a great week!

  3. It still turned out gorgeous!!!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
