Shut the front door

With nearly all of the house painting done, we are down to just the random bits – including the front door. It is original to the house, which makes it 75 years old – and it has at least five layers of paint on it. We just can’t add another, and quite a bit of it was peeling off anyway, so today I started stripping it down.  

Green, white, yellow, red, and blue paint are coming off slowly; tomorrow I’ll sand it down and fill some of the cracks & holes before giving it a new primer coat. We aren’t sure what color to paint it yet; it’s tough because it has both blue and grey next to it on the porch so we are hesitant about introducing yet another color. It may end up white.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure.
