Last week, I discussed the possibility of
painting the door to my garage black.
Not only did you all agree it was a great idea,
but I also decided it was the right thing to do.
Thanks for your advice by the way!
My plan is to start with the garage side of the door.
I will leave the inside white and maybe decide on that later.
So today, I drove to the Benjamin Moore store
to pick up the paint and supplies.
I told the guy what I was planning to do
and he told me the paint to buy.
Which by the way, was not low VOC
but he said that would be the best paint for the job.
My door is metal so I guess the paint he suggested would adhere to it better.
Anyway he also told me
that I should wait until SPRING
to paint the door!
Apparently, the paint needs time to cure at above 50 degrees.
Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing those temperatures
for quite some time now!
So, I guess this project will have to wait.
I must say though, I am so glad I went to Benjamin Moore
instead of one of the big retailers that sells paint.
I couldn’t exactly picture them telling me to wait
or even knowing I should wait for that matter!
I love the fact that the Benjamin Moore guy was honest
and wasn’t just concerned about making a sale!
I guess I will just work on one of the other million projects on my list.
But thanks for the advice on the black doors
and expect to see the change this spring!
Have you put any projects on hold recently?
