This isn’t a blog about musicians.
A wild idea came to me while we were in the long process of fixing the rot under the house, replacing vital parts, and painting. It began because none of us could decide on a favorite door color.
So why not paint all the doors a different color?
First, I will treat you to the redoing of a 100 year-old door: First, strip the many, many layers of paint.
Next, figure out the color. In this case I took some flowers from the garden to Home Depot and color matched them.
Then, finding the outline of old hinges under the paint layers, I set out to duplicate the hinges with “play-doh”.
It wasn’t easy to find something that would withstand freezing and humid hot weather and still stick to the door. I was able to use this and then paint it with weather-proof paint and glue it with weather-proof glue. I think it was successful.
You can almost see the “hinges” on the left edge of the door.
