For the weekly photo challenge – New.
During the holidays, I did some painting around the house, including re-vamping my front door. It’s a very solid door, most likely original with the house, which I believe was built in 1980. The door is timber with a large lead-lined glass panel. A few years ago, I re-varnished the door back to the usual “timber” colour.
The door was peeling and cracked from the sun and needed some love. So, I painted it pink 🙂 I went to the hardware store, picked out a fabulous colour (Fuchsia Flock, although I like to call it Lipstick Pink) and painted up the door. I love it, it really makes me smile.
The door represents to me a new year, a new round of adventures, a new way to live my life this year. It’s a doorway to the world, to new opportunities. It’s also a doorway into my home, where I hope to spend more time this year – less travel, more hanging out with family, friends and MissG at home.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and a bright and shiny New Years!
