Garage Doors

Another project I've been wanting to work on is painting the doors in our garage. We have a 2 car garage that has a large door for the cars (Doesn't need painting, it's fine), a door to the house, a smaller door to the outside, and a door to the utility closet.

The three small doors are all an ugly beige/brown color, with scratches, nicks, etc in the paint making them look rather sorry. Also, two of the doors have lattice work on the windows that hadn't ever been painted. Armed with leftover paint from another project, I set to work on one of the doors (The other two will have to wait until I have more time).

Smaller door to the outside before picture. It's hard to get a good shot of the door without the sun messing up the lighting. 

Unless I take the picture at night. This is after.  Lattice work is white, door and frame are creamy beige.

I think it looks better.

It took me awhile to get this door painted because I had to do two to three coats of paint to make it look good. The old paint was a lot darker than this new paint.  This door had rust on it, too. Hopefully, the paint job will stop it from progressing.

The other two doors are on my top priority list for fix it jobs now. I want them to match.  :) 

Of course,  I can't let this sort of thing get in the way of my writing, either. I'm rushing to try to get my third book done. Since Noble Imposter is now out, I really need to get to work on CCB3.
