We had a minor causality in the war of making our home pretty.

Our bedroom door.

I had a very pretty Fleur de Lis hook I wanted to hang on our bedroom door. We knew the nails it came with were too long for our door, so we searched our nail stash for ones that would work. Hubby measured two I found, but they wouldn’t work. Then we found two significantly shorter nails, and assumed it would work.

Not so much.

Of course, we discovered this after the nails went through the door.


So, now it’s off the hinges, wood filler and a new coat of paint for our door.

On the upside, it really needed a sanding and a new coat of paint.

On the downside, still no pretty hook.
