Sometimes I send my husband sweet e-mails at work.
Full of encouragement and hearts and hands clapping a smiley faces.
And sometimes I get a conversation that starts like this:
Him: “Why did you send me an e-mail that ended with a chin?”
Me: (dumbfounded) “What? A chin? I sent you a smiley face.”
Him: “I know. I saw that. But the smiley face had a chin.”
Me: (starting blankly)
Him: (helpfully drawing it out on a piece of paper) “It looked like this.”
I laughed out loud.
I couldn’t help it.
Me: (after I finally stopped laughing) “That’s a heart.”
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
And now….here’s how my heart and I transformed a builder’s door from ordinary to extraordinary.
Step 1: Tape off the door
Using a smaller width FrogTape painters tape.
The tape I used was almost an inch wide.
Start at the edge of the panel and adhere the tape to the door. Press the tape around the rest of the panel until the entire panel is surrounded as shown.
Step 2: Repeat step 1 for the remaining five panels.
Step 3: Cover hardware
Tape off hardware with frog tape.
Tape hardware next to the door and cover the handle.
Step 4: Cover hinges
Tape off hinges with frog tape.
Tape hardware next to the door and cover the hinges.
Step 5: Paint door
Using semi-gloss paint, paint the door including the panels.
Paint a second coat if necessary.
Step 6: Remove tape
Remove painter’s tape from the door.
When you are finished the door should look just like this.
My heart and I think it turned out perfectly. 🙂
PS I loved the comments on the last post.
I read the post so many times I decided that I needed a red door.
I think I love it.
If it wasn’t -9 degrees I might paint it today.
What do you think? 🙂
