The weekend before last I started yet another project, although I have some I need to finish that I started before. I think I get bored with the way things are going and I have to move to something else. I don't know, been like that all my life.
But anyway, I had the small, thin in width bookcase that is in my entry way. I have had it for years. Well, let's see, my daughter is 32 and I got it when she was a baby. It was given to me and my ex by his mother and it once had belonged to her father. I had not touched it all these years but the other day I was looking at it and decided it needed help.
It had a reddish tint to it as you can see but the color in my living room is a dark brown color and this is right there at the living room so I wanted them to match.
I primed the piece and added some legs to it which that alone made a neat difference. The I pulled out the same dark brown paint that I did my bathroom cabinet in. It took a while, so I did not finish it up the weekend I started on it. I finished it this weekend. Had prime this side and when that dried, flip it and prime the bottom of the shelves. Let that dry and repeat twice with the paint. Here is the finished product.

My great nephew, Cole, who will be 2 next month decided to draw with his crayons on the wall. Now who has been there? I've been there, my son did it and my grandson did it. According to my mother, I did it! Look at that master piece. Looks like an R at the top and ay at the bottom. Ray, his grandpa's name. LOL
On the flip side, being an artist, I know that I was beginning to show my talents, even at that young of an age!
Thanks for stopping in,

The windows in the house are trimmed in white so I kept the shutters white. Actually, these have been replaced from the wooden ones to the new hard plastic (whatever) type. The guy who painted the house said he could do the shutters and door a different color but at the time I had already put out a good chuck of change so I stayed with the simplest…..white. He made the suggestion of color after he had already painted them white, and I also saw no need to change that.
NOW….the door picks up everything, so I was thinking of painting it a color. Question is, what color? Then the next question is, since I have decided to not do the shutters, will that be ok? I posted these questions on facebook on my home page. And I got a lot of replies. I was thinking a light hunter green color, but now I wonder if a bold hunter green? The replies I got were really neat, they ranged from green, to orange (no), to red (considering) to a burgundy, teal, and even yellow (not considering). More votes went to red but then the burgundy came in this morning……oh yea, that sounds great to me. Will not show dirt, has a pop of color when folks walk up and it will be different. I am still in question of the white shutters….crap, I might need to have someone paint them the same color…..just not sure how well that will stand up since they are not wood.
I will tell you why I have that question in my mind of the two different colors…..I have a hint (maybe more) of OCD and as driving I will look at house and my first thoughts are, that would look better if the door was the same color of the shutters! Yes I do…..and this question is killing me!
Thinking it will require slapping paint on that door and going with it, if I don't like, what have I got to lose? I will just repaint again!
Thanks for stopping in, Pam
