As I alluded in my other post about our projects, we also recently took care of one of the projects that has been on my list since before we put an offer on this house. No, seriously.
It was one of the biggest things that I hated about our house.
I love our front porch. It is one of the things that sold us about this house. We love hanging out outside. We have updated the landscaping, added those shutters, changed the lighting, changed the house numbers, painted the bead board ceiling blue, and added cute little accents to make it welcoming.
But, that door.
Don't ask me why I hated it, I have no idea. I just thought it was ugly and needed to go.
I even tried to just update the door to live with it. I painted it red, hung a wreath with every season, bought new hardware, and highlighted the beautiful stained glass piece that the previous owners saved from the original house door.
But, that storm door. Ugh.
So, it was always on the list. Finally, Austin and I got around to going in and special ordering the door we really wanted (historic homes = special size, not found in stores doors). And last weekend, Austin and his dad started installing it.
I was so excited.
I took pictures. I did actually help a little...you know, reading instructions, finding "missing parts", etc.
Did I mention we got to buy a hacksaw that day?
It seems every project leads to a new tool purchase...
