What to do, what to do...

For quite a long time now, I've been thinking about painting our front door. Can you believe it is still the same white that it has been since we moved in nine years ago? White. Boring white. I want to paint it black to match the shutters and to coordinate with the gray siding. I even went on an internet search yesterday to find out the right way to do it. I thought I had it figured out, and mentioned it to Derek. He asked a few guys that he works with about it (he works in the office at a building supply store--handy huh?) and came home with the bad news. It would seem that if I painted our door, it would turn into a huge disaster. See, we have a glass storm door, too, and a lot of heat gets trapped between the two doors. This would inevitably cause the paint to bubble up. Apparently, what is on there now is just builder's primer, therefore, no bubbling. Sigh. I'm stuck with a white door. Oh, I could order a new door. Yeah, that's gonna happen.

Anyone have any ideas about what to do about a boring, white door?

Hi! I saw your comment on Lulaville. She is a very close friend of mine. And...I also know your brother Dennis. We weren't attending church in Pennington a the time he was pastoring, but still were friends with him. It was nice to see a comment from a almost local! Tell Dennis and family the Cresses said "Hi"

Hey there--thanks for stopping by Lulaville. My husband is from here, but I've only lived in Pennington 5 years...but we did used to attend FBC, so I'm certain I know a lot of people who know your brother!

Now I'm gonna go back and read some of your blog...good, good stuff!
