{Home} Making a Mark

Paint is an easy way to make a mark on your space and turn it into your own.  I knew one of the first painting projects I wanted to tackle was painting the inside of the front door my favorite color: aqua.  I stopped by Benjamin Moore to pick up some paint samples, and fell in love with their color Burbank Blue.  I got a quart in high-gloss, and used about half on the door.

I also picked up some painting supplies at Lowe’s.  First painting project means I needed to get all the basics, including a brush and roller.

One thing I did have on hand was painter’s tape.  I taped around the door to protect the frame, locks, and knobs.  (And yes, that’s my mezuzah hanging to the left of the door.)

One coat down!  And it’s already made such a difference in the space.

The second coat went on even easier and needed less paint than the first.  Then it was just a matter of removing the tape and letting it dry.  It’s hard to get a good picture in the small room, but I tried.

Such a small change, but I love it!
