During our extremely brief stay back home in Watertown before Thane deployed, we knocked out a few fun projects. The first was a quick color update to our front door "greeters". I'd been meaning to do this for a while; when we first bought our old gray house in Watertown last winter, I immediately wanted to paint the front doors yellow just like this. But there was no way I was going to convince Thane to let me paint over the one hundred and fifty year old original solid hardwood doors. And for good reason. But there's always room for compromise! That's where these weathered bronze lions come in. They were here when we bought the place, and they are no where near as ancient as the doors. In fact, they came from T.J. Max for $7.99 a pop {evidenced by the sticker that was still on the back of one when I gave it a closer look}. So there was no harm in taking a little spray paint to these guys!

I love the way they turned out! They were barely noticeable before, but now they pop right out. And I think my favorite thing about these guys is they remind me of Jesus, because He is literally called "the lion" of the tribe of Judah {Genesis 49:8-10, Revelation, 5:5}. Pretty neat, right?!
