I’ll be honest, I don’t like my front door and I don’t like my back door either. Often, when we have something we don’t like we change it, sometimes at great expense. When looking around a prospective new house, some people won’t buy somewhere because of the door or the kitchen and convince themselves that ‘it’s not up to our standard.’ That’s very easy for us to overcome as I obviously have very low standards as I’ll live with anything if it’s: in good condition, it works, there’s nothing wrong with it and it does the job it’s intended to do.
Then, when I’ve got past the fact that a door is a door then I’ll look after it like I love it. My doors, which I hate, get washed and wiped down every week to keep them in good condition. DB oils the locks and hinges also to keep them in good working order. I then give them a spray furniture polish to give the door a shine. Finally, the step gets scrubbed with hot soapy water and rinsed with a generous swoosh of cold water.
So where am I going with this? We’re different aren’t we? We have what we have and just live with it as we don’t want to spend money on things we don’t need. We don’t waste a perfectly good door, sofa, table in the name of fashion, looks, what anyone thinks, the wow factor and never care a damn how old it is either. We respect function and we look after it as we know it’s good enough.
Now it’s your turn. Who else has something they really don’t like or even hate but take care of it?
