Paint It Black


Hi there and happy Monday!  Sorry if Mondays bring you down and my peppiness makes you nauseous, but since I love what I do, I no longer hate Mondays.  Every day is a blessing.  And this week is supposed to be absolutely gorgeous...my favorite fall weather!  I want to enjoy every last minute of it because it never lasts long.

We got our new front door this weekend and it looks fantastic.  I am so happy with it.  Its black with custom made wrought iron.  Very elegant and so much nicer than the builder's basic our house came with. 

We still need to update our house numbers and mailbox because they now look even crappier beside this lovely door. 

I am very proud to say that I repainted the bench on our front porch and our garage door all by myself!  No biggie if you are handy but I am no DIYer.  I hummed and hawed about doing it myself and even went so far as to book our handyman to do it instead because I so doubted I could pull it off.  Finally, I got sick of being such a chicken and decided to try my hand at it and...it was super easy and I think I did a pretty good job!

Next up, I'm thinking about refinishing our dining room table.

Do you always doubt yourself?  If you are a woman, chances are the answer is yes.  We tend to second guess our abilities more than men do.  Can you imagine how different the world would be if we didn't give in to these fears and we had more confidence?

Now that I've reached 40, I am trying hard to push past my fears and take risks.  Painting a garage is a small one, but I'm working my way up.  Baby steps!

What do you wish you had the confidence to do?
