Back when I screwed the exterior door frames with more screws, I left the heads exposed and went on with my life.
I thought I could live with it. Some are hidden; some are not.
Weeks later, they are staring at me! I had to do something.
I’ve been put on a brief pause with projects around the house, so I am looking at fixing things I have around me. Why not cover the screws up and paint over them? I have the paint. It would make them much more appealing.
I used Elmer’s Wood Filler.
Step One: Put filler into the hole.
Step Two: Use a scraper to even the surface
Let it dry, sand it and then it’s time to paint.
I had a gaping hole in our front door frame that has been there forever!
I never asked the builder to fix it, so I finally did!
Our trim paint color is Pacer White by Sherwin Williams (SW 6098). It’s an offwhite color for sure. I’m not sure how much I love it. I like white, but too white can feel commercial and lose that homey feeling.
Now it is just a distant thing in the past that I re-enforced our door frames. Hopefully I will never need to kick down my door. I won’t be getting in that way.
