Photo Challenge ~ Door

The door I wanted to feature, I can't find the photo anywhere. How frustrating. So coming in at second place and a huge labor of love is the door to my husband's shop. (Once our garage) This was a project I started two summer's ago and summer is not the best time to be painting on a south facing bright white wall. It's a wonder I am not blind! I had to get up at the crack of dawn and paint all one color. Let it dry, re coat and so on and so forth. And that was after I taped all the lines to keep it crisp and tidy. Then of course I couldn't leave the tape on in the heat of the sun, so that all had to be pulled off daily. To make matters worse, most of the properties in our town, have alleys that run behind them, and mine is no exception, so folks would zoom down the alley, giving me strange looks and kicking up lots of dust and dirt. Oy! But I have to admit, in the end I am really glad I did it and I must say, I think I have the prettiest garage door in town. :) Head on over to Razmaztaz to see some other lovely doors! Always, Kit
