The Man Can Paint!

Ta Da!

Laughing Boy stripped and repainted our 40 year old front door. We wanted some texture to it, so he cleaned up most of the huge dents and dings but left in just enough wear to give it some attitude. And he went for some visible brush strokes, to add some texture here and there.

We found the door knocker at an Indonesian Furniture store on La Brea. I don't have the kind of money it would take to get any of their furniture, but the door knockers are great. We narrowed it down to two, between this guy with the fish, and one with some parrots, I think.

I really like the touch of verdigris in the door knocker. (another camera phone picture, so the color here's not quite accurate.)

One thing for sure, our door is not the least bit subtle. Just like this panda.
