{30 Minutes to a Prettier Front Door}

Wish I had taken a full length picture of the door before...but I think you get the picture. The original blah blah brown door needed some help. Pretty door decor on the blah brown didn't have much of an impact.
Thirty minutes later...........I've got a pretty BLACK front door (I used a black Valspar paint from Lowe's...Satin finish.) that I am L.O.V.I.N.G. now. The cute heart on the front door now has a background that it can be proud of. :)
I did NOT remove the hardware from the door, well I tried but it's an OLD door and there weren't any screws to be removed. I just used my mad painting skills and carefully painted around the grooves and crevices. (I'm so cool, I know.)
Have a loveRly day my friends! Hey, go paint your door. DON'T FORGET TO ENTER IN MY SISTER'S CONTEST...IT'S OVER TODAY AT 5:00 CENTRAL TIME.

Hmmmmmmmm, I'm loving my (lonely) 3 comments but gosh darn it.....I guess, one should really not post on Friday's b/c it seems that people don't really comment or possibly they don't visit blogs. i'm feeling a little unloved of late........can we show a girl some love?
