It’s Decorating Time

It’s decorating time.  Graduation and Army send off party time.  My youngest has went and grown up on me all in a blink of an eye.  Makes me tear a little thinking about it.  We will soon be empty nesters.  What a privilege it has been to raise our 3 children.

I have been busy busy busy making decorations and preparing for his big say.  I will show you those in another post.

I wanted to share something today that you will probably see a lot of on my blog because it can be used year round.

Several years ago I was given an old farm house door that I put in the basement to work on someday.  A couple of weeks ago I finally jumped in and got it finished.  I enjoy taking something old and giving it a new look.   I love how it turned out.

I wanted to make this old antique door look new antique, if that makes sense.     I was told by a friend that if you use elmers glue prior to painting, it will give it an old look.  IT WORKS!!!

Here are the steps I took:

I cleaned the door off.

Sanded it a bit.

Painted 1/2 at a time with Elmers Glue and while still damp topped with white paint.

I took my paint brush and continued brushes after sticky to the look I wanted.

Then I took a break, drank a cup of coffee and let it dry.

It turned out beautiful.

Then I found the perfect place to put it.

Placed a wreath on the door and sat on the porch to admire it.

That’s it….easy job with a rewarding look.

I am with decorating around the house like I am with your appearance .  It just takes a little time.  It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.  My door was free. 🙂  Your body was given to you free.  Fix it up and be thankful for what God has given you.

Take what you have and make something with it.  It’s sooo rewarding!

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to spend some time with me.

Keep looking up…He’s coming soon!

I am…

Blessed Beyond Measures,

Cindy
