the door is red

Hey guys, it's Monday!!  I have no idea how that happened.  My parents offered to take the kids for a few days and Mark and I spent the weekend up to our elbows in paint and DIY projects around here.  We are soooo very tired, but we accomplished a ton.

One project that we crossed off the list?  Painting the front door.  You might remember from this post, that I had wanted to paint it red.  After taping a whole bunch of swatches to the front door, we ended up with a Martha Stewart color called Barn. 

Ready to see the before and after??

I LOVE it!!  I get a big smile every time I open the door.

This project was really so easy.  We {and when I say we, I mean Mark} roughed up the door a little bit with a scour pad, then he taped and painted.  It probably took an hour.  Total.  I am not kidding when I say that it took longer for me to blog about this project than to actually complete it. 

Here are a couple more pics:

I think that is all I have brain power for today.  My babies are coming home and I need to fuel up on lots of coffee!!  I hope you all have a fantastic Monday!!
