Marie Kondo would stop breathing if she saw my breakfast table…she wouldn’t know where to start! This kind of clutter keeps me company, though, when I can’t actually do anything else. By nature, I’m not a tidy person… there was a very good reason why the office area at the store was completely out of sight to customers. Thankfully for me, the incredible women I worked with often took pity (more likely, they couldn’t handle it) and would try to “organize” me!
I like my stuff where I can see it. I’ve been revisiting my favourite garden design books, scrolling through YouTube garden videos and pouring over paint decks. Before beginning a new project, I have to find my starting point. That could be anything…a colour, an object…and from there, the plans begin. I can’t honestly say I’ve found that “certain something” yet for this year’s outdoor plan. Firstly, I’m still waffling between painting the front door (and back doors) green or lavender, which is so unusual for me. Procrastination isn’t part of my makeup!
Although it’s still too chilly to paint outdoors, I’ve started the tedious prep work. All the doors are metal but the vinyl trim around the windows has chipped and peeled away in spots. I’ve decided to scrape off all the paint on this trim before sanding and priming…what fun!!!
After a long day, the first set of doors is ready to go. Now the weather has to cooperate…I really don’t like the stark black/white contrast on the doors. Walking past this multiple times a day should speed up the what colour decision!
