After I finished that huge shutter project on the front of the house, I felt so good, and so relieved. I knew I still had the other 3 sides to complete, but the front was done, and I was so happy.
Happy until I did a double take on the two eyebrow windows on the east side of the house.
To me, they looked a little left out.
“Hey, what about me?”
“Can we get painted or some tiny shutters?”
I know, I know. There is always more than can be done with a project. But it got me thinking about primping those eyebrow windows.
Before I could even think about what these windows needed, I had to get a reality check on myself, and talk my way through knowing I needed to crawl up a ladder and work on a sloped roof. As I have mentioned before, my fear of heights is sick. Like, I start pacing when I know I have to crawl up high on a ladder, but then I hear my Daddy’s voice in my head, telling me to head my fears straight on, and overcome.
And sometimes, I don’t like my Daddy’s philosophies, but he is right.
So I crawled up that ladder, sweating like a man, thinking that the detail on the windows needed to be black. And I was liking how they were turning out, but then when I looked at the house from yard, I wasn’t so sure.
I started stewing all over again. And the more I stewed, the more anxious about these windows I got. Maybe just the frame around the window should be black, and the detail should be white?
I repeated the whole ladder process, and painted just the inside detail white.
I think I like it. I mean, I want to like it because I don’t want to go up on the ladder again, but I also want these windows to look just right.
I need your opinion. What way do you like best? Please comment, and I’ll go with majority rules.
Option 1? Option 2? Option 3?
