Today’s trip to the home improvement store was quick, painless, and I think I only need to go back one more time for this project. That’s pretty good for the novice DIYer, oh yeah!
Today I started my front door repainting project…
- Decided on a color- isn’t that always the hardest thing to do? I walked right into the paint section, looked at the simplest display, chose the darkest pine green and was finished in less than one minute. The guys at Home Depot had to then redirect me to the proper exterior paints. So I just picked the closest color to the one I liked. Done.
- Sanded down the whole door by hand with a coarse paper
- Realized I already owned the proper paintbrush, enough wood filler and the fine sanding paper for the orbital sander. Trip #2 to the store will be for returns only, I hope.
Tomorrow I’m hoping to fill in low spots with wood filler and sand down the rest of the door to smooth it all out… that is, if I’m not standing in a Comic Con line to get passes into the fabled “Hall H.”
Wish me luck…
