home updates

i love being busy. i'm way more efficient that way.
sunday....got lots done. after church, the craziness began. 
 a while back we painted our bedroom and replaced the carpet. we also painted the doors. well, we only painted the doors on the outside, not the inside of the closets & bathroom. so, that was finally done sunday. sanded & painted! 
so glad to have those 3 doors done. 
(almost sounded like 3 doors down...are they still around???) 
anywho, i saw some great tutorials on my favorite blogs & pinterest for door handle upgrades. so i took the plunge and changed the bright goldish color to black. 
i was hoping for a bronze but didn't find any colors that fit my fancy...so black it was. 
i didn't take any before & after pictures, but you can get the idea of the before from here.
seriously so excited to get this project finished. i have 2 primer coats complete plus one color coat. tomorrow i'll work on wrapping it up. must make sure it cures really well so trying to be extra careful.
