How to paint a ‘reminder’ door (its front, edge, back)

For the days that zip by so quickly with tons to do and tons of constant thinking, it’s nice to see visual reminders … little clues to help us stop in our tracks and think of the positives (not of the person who didn’t hold the door for you as you carried 500 packages, 4 hours ago. Yeah, we can keep gripes in our mind for a while huh). Ever noticed how we can have tons of photos in our home, but not look at them often? This is why I love having words displayed in the home, words gently nudge us to stop to read (a natural reaction). Today’s post shows how I used a door to give us a reminder message including painting the word “is” on the edge of the door.

I chose the sentence – Bliss is Love, picking words that could be read from both sides of the door.

When you enter, it reads: Love is Bliss
When you exit, it reads: Bliss is Love

TOOLS: 
1. pencil
2. paint
3. brush

I used left over paint from painting this yellow wall here, so my cost was $0 buckaroos to do this project. Do you have any extra paint snoozing in your home? Wake it up and try this project.

STEPS:
1. draw the words with “is” in the edge of the door
2. paint in the outlined words
3. send me a photo if you do this project, wink! I may share it on my social media platforms (have your creation inspire others!)

The door I choose to paint “Love is Bliss” is our bathroom door so we (and guests) can see the message every day we open/close the door. I love the idea of painting kids bedroom door with their name on the outside, word is on the edge, then an inspirational word on the inside of the door.

    what a great saying. I can’t wait to get started; )

  2. I will certainly be stealing this idea =P I have my dream board/goal board on the inside part of the bathroom door… perfect place to slow down, read, and think happy thoughts. I try so hard to let go of things, but you’re right, even the littlest grudges so stubbornly linger =/
