BIG plans... UPDATE

Well, my BIG plans did not get off to the best start.  Weather, car problems and sick kids have set me back. Everything is fixed - except the weather- lots of rain...but we need it!  When that clears, I can paint the door!

I decided to complete all the small projects first before moving on to the large projects.
So I thought I would start with painting the front door.  Ideally, we want to get a new front door like the one pictured below. But, it's not high on the priority list. :-)


When we moved in, the door was blue and the house was yellow. Not my preferred palette.
So we painted the house and front door. I chose a brick red color for the door because I always wanted a red door.  Over the years, that color has look more and more ugly to me.  So I decided to paint it black to match the shutters.

I bought the paint and was so ready to paint!  When we finally had a sunny warm day good for painting, I went out to get started. I scraped all the old caulking away and went to cleaning the sidelights.  Whatever kind of dirt has attached to the sidelights since last summers cleaning is some kind of super dirt that refuses to be cleaned with any cleaner I can find in my house!  So, off to get some CLR to see if I can get these sidelights clean so I can paint the door.

I have been waiting until I get the door painted to hang my new wreath I put together but I decided since it was taking too long I would just hang it anyway!  Let's call this the first small project! LOL

So...not a lot to update but here is a photo of my wreath. I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!  I think it will look a LOT better when the door is painted black!

LAST DAY for FREE Mrs Meyer's Cleaner and more...


Exclusive offer:  through April 4th, my readers will receive a FREE Mrs. Meyer's multi-purpose cleaner, $10 credit, & Free shipping for first time customers!

This is an AMAZING offer and I am so happy to offer this to all of you, since I am HUGE fan of Mrs. Meyer's.  I LOVE this cleaner, I use it all the time in my home. I have used the Lavender scent and the Geranium (my favorite). This cleaner works on anything. All Mrs. Meyer's scents are derived from essential oils of herbs and flowers (one of the main reasons I LOVE them!).  So, these products have an aroma-therapeutic effect. You can relax while you clean!

Let me explain how ePantry works. With ePantry, you can plan out a delivery schedule months in advance, or customize an order when you need one. You can edit your dashboard in any way at any time, and there are lots of great features to fit your needs. ePantry will recommend products and a schedule to you, but you are not locked in, and you choose the products you receive.

Here's how to get your FREE cleaner and $10 credit:

  4. Add a minimum of $20 (including your multi-surface cleaner and $10 credit, these will automatically appear in your cart) of products to your shipment. 
  5. Once you have filled your basket, click finish and pay.
