Come on in, the door's open!

When we first bought our dream house, an old abandoned farm house that was built in 1932, it was far from dreamy! When others saw what it was (a mess), we saw the potential of what it could be. During our remodel, which we did ourselves, we added two bathrooms (his and hers) and a laundry room. The door you see here was actually the original front door to the home and is now in my bathroom and leads to the laundry room. It is also the center of one of my most recent projects.
1 Corinthians 2:9

Ecclesiastes 3:11
I had been playing around with the idea of painting the window of the door with chalkboard paint but I just wasn't sure I wanted to do this. I was afraid I would have a hard time cleaning if off if it turned out that I didn't like it. So I came up with an alternative. It was really very easy and I confess that I cheated a little. Here's how I did it. I first selected the scripture I wanted to use and the font that I liked. I printed the verse on my home printer the size that I wanted it to be on the door. It didn't all fit on one page so I printed it on three pages and taped them together. I then centered and taped the whole thing to the back side of the glass. I used a white paint pen and traced the lettering onto the glass. I removed the "cheat sheet" and taped a black poster board to the back side so it looks like a chalkboard, which I love! In the laundry room, I have a curtain that hangs over the window so the black paper isn't visible.

It only took a few minutes to actually complete and I can change it anytime the mood strikes me.

I love this verse. It reminds me every day that the BEST is yet to come!

Here's wishing you God's best!
