Where have I been? Clearly not writing blog posts. I jumped into this blog thing without a real thorough plan. So here is my plan. Short and sweet. I will post here on RICE 3 times a week. I’m guessing it’ll be on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays.


So enough shop talk. What have I been up to? Well, I painted the front door black. My love of black paint continues. And I couldn’t be happier with the front door! (I used premixed black paint from Home Depot. Rustoleum Painter’s Touch Flat Acrylic Latex General Purpose paint. It can be used inside and outside and has been holding up great!)


It surely looks a lot better than it did when we moved in!


Shortly after we moved in, we gave the door a little TLC. Fixed the screen. Painted the screen door teal. Didn’t like it. Painted it orange. Liked it for a little while. We’ve also painted the porch floor a warm tan/brown and the porch posts are no longer red, they’re a nice crisp white. A little paint went a long way in upping the curb appeal to our little home!

Have you painted your front door recently? What color? Do you have a favorite front door color?
