Blogging and social media always has a bit of a smoke and mirrors element to it. We let others see what we want them to see, right?
What I tend share here At the Picket Fence are the areas of my home that are neat and tidy. There are vignettes and displays and carefully decorated nooks and crannies.
And, while I like to think that I’m all about keeping it real with you, I’ve also been known to photoshop dust out of a picture. So…yeah…there’s that.
The truth is, there are parts of my home that aren’t so pretty. Areas that need some work.
There’s the hole in the wall in my daughter’s room. A result of some over-zealous playing.
There’s the paint chipping in the kids’ bathroom which is a room that really just needs an entire overhaul.
There’s the spray painted knobs in the laundry room that are working their way back to their original color.
And there’s this door. It’s the door which leads from our backyard into the garage.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. That door looks perfectly fine, right?
Well, just like with social media, looks can be deceiving.
You see, this particular door has a frame that is falling apart. And every time we go to open or close it we have to push and pull which puts more stress on it.
The weather stripping is flopping all around and even just the door itself is starting to feel the neglect.
We’ve been putting it off until this summer but now summer is flying by and we’re realizing that we really need to do something about it and soon because once the rainy season starts here in Oregon we could have an even more serious problem on our hands when water starts coming in.
So, you can imagine my delight when I was given the opportunity to partner with Window World!
Because, not only does this amazing company offer a huge array of windows to choose from, they also have…yep…you guessed it. DOORS!!
So many high-quality doors!
Beautiful, beautiful non-falling apart doors!
I’m more than comfortable clicking that ‘place order’ button when it comes to a new pair of shoes, but for a bigger item, I really want to be able to do my due diligence by researching the products and see them in person. Luckily, Window World has over 200 locations nationwide. And I get to visit our local Window World store location and pick out my door in person! And guess what? I’m taking you along with me.
We’re going to do a little shopping together!
Stay tuned as I navigate this process and take our back door from falling apart to fabulous!
Thanks so much for meeting me at the fence (and at the back door!) today,
