Not finished yet April 12, 2010

… or ever, it seems.

Painter got first coat on the front door. It’s a Ralph Lauren color, which HD doesn’t carry anymore, so I had to have it color-matched. Not sure they got it exactly. Maybe it will work better with the final coat. Right now it looks like something out of The Greeks. I keep expecting Clytemnestra to come sweeping out covered in blood.

Front Door with one coat of paint.

Bought new loppers yesterday and headed out to the side yard with them to do a little trimming at the shrub border with the house next door. Neighbor Matt got envious of all the fun I was having and went to fetch his trimmers and saw. Two hours later we had this. šŸ˜‰

    Love that door! Is it reclaimed or new?

    I like the door too, from what I can tell about the color on screen. Maybe not a bad idea to have it look like Clytemnestra might come sweeping out covered in blood. Not great welcoming feng shui I guess, but might send a message to possible intruders. Don’t mess with this, the House of Atreus.

    I love the look of red doors! Supposed to bring good luck!
