The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

In my decluttering quest...I was distracted.  I was putting away the paint that I had in the dining room for touch-ups I had been working on….when I decided that I should paint the patio door.

Here is my before:

I want to say that I painted the patio door black….maybe a year ago???  I can’t really remember….and I really like it….. it just seems to darken the room.  I fight against a contrast of too dark and super glare-y all the time so I am trying a new color to see if if helps with the too dark half of my problem.

To combat the glare – Dave pitched in by hanging a curtain rod for me and making sure it was properly anchored.

Paint:  I used Valspar Ultra as my paint of choice (matches all my trim).  I prepped the surface and went to town.

As distractions go….It was a pretty good one.  I am super pleased with how it turned out.  I will need to work on how the curtains hang and how to drape around our water dispenser but even with those things on my list…I like it.
