My only cost was the painters tape which was $5-ish....I bought a lot of groceries that day and don't remember exactly.
I had the rug from Dollar General that I paid $10 for last year. I bought it to lay over the NASTY crapet (yep, I meant crapet) Got it home and of course it was about 1 inch too wide. Suckola! I then put it on the porch to catch the sand and dirt from tracking in the house....it still does, but not as much.
The rug when I started was filthy, dirt and sand galore. I didn't wash it. I vac'd it like 5 times and it still has sand in it! Which is fine because it went right back out on the porch. It's not big enough to warrant keeping it in the house. Plus, we have very plush/shaggy 80's crapet, so rugs won't lay right.
|It's like a light brown color.|
Then I started painting and painting. The paint is just regular house paint. The white is marshmallow white from glidden and the black is an oops can Mr. TSL picked up for $5 to paint the kitchen cabinets from Lowe's. Kitchen Cabinet paint no more. I used it for this project and for next weeks project and I may paint the front door :) It bubbles anyway, so it wouldn't make good cabinet paint.
After 2 coats of black paint, it was decently covered....remember this is going on the porch and is currently dirty from being there now.
|it is actually covered better, but seemed to show brush marks in the crappy pic.|
Then I started taping and taping and taping. After 2 coats of white paint, it looked like this:
Now, I need your opinion on something.......
We scored this amazing door at Habitat for Humanity for $10. Mr. TSL hung it and I love love it! It's like adding another window in a room with little light!
It's wood on the side facing to dining room and white facing the sunporch.
I plan to either paint it candy apple red or black....what to do?
