    Default I may have finally lost it

    My whole house is a remodel project. My bathroom is finally done except for a few pain touch up here and there. I finally got off my lazy butt to do it. As I'm going over the hand prints left on my door and trim I notice litlle dirty puppy paw print smudges. I got a little sad because Dozer used to paw at the door if I were on one side of it and he were on the other. I decided it was best to just continue what I was doing and paint over these last. Well I got done with everything else and decided I am NOT painting over those. So now I have a sparkling clean , freshly painted white door,except for the bottom 3 inches. Dirty paw prints and smudges line both sides and now i'm considering covering them with clear paint so they are there permanently . At least that way it can be "cleaned" My boyfriend just looked at me like I had lost my ind and walked away when I told him. But you know what , It's my house and anyone who doesn't like it doesn't have to come over.

    I think it's a sweet idea. I'm quite the sentimental too.

    @Lucy-licious I love the idea but unfortunately after examining them with a magnafying glass (literally) I have concluded they are all pretty much smears. Does anyone have any csi kinda ideas to find one? blacklight maybe?

    Maybe paint a paw on one of the smudges or beside it. Just a thought.

    I don't know about finding one on the door, but I know you can "lift" one with clear tape. That could be a way of preserving a print. I have a friend who is head of our police dept forensics unit so if I see him tonight, I'll ask.

    I would of put the old door in the garage and bought a new one. That way you can work on it later. I'm not crafty but there must be a way to preserve the paw marks.

    OR,,,,,,, you could paint over the smudges to make the door look nice and be cleaned easily; THEN paint a facsimile of a dog print where the smudges were. I don't think you need to originals. Its the thought that counts.
