With the assistance of a cheap can of paint and some tools, we re-welted our old oven door, and now it looks like new. Now, if baking bread becomes a bit more than what we can handle in terms of time commitment and cleaning the mess afterwards (I’m not even going to try to start on that one), then I have a challenge for you.

We don’t have to always take help of Pros to fix or create everything, we can do a lot our self by referring to good training available online. No need to go anywhere. If we are little careful and a bit time full, then we can complete it our self without any expert intervention to solve the problem. Here is an example of our kitchen oven door makeover.


The Beginning

It was a busy day for me to complete some work at my office and had planned to cook some breads at home for my family in the evening. I was knowledgeable enough about baking breads from my earlier days, so I decided to give it a try. I started with getting all necessary ingredients needed for making buns.

After mixing the batter and putting it in the oven, I forgot to preheat the oven, but my will power to complete the cooking process with this mistake was high. So I put the bun tray in with a hope that it will result in good buns.


First Batch

I started working on my office work. I think I’ve spent around 1 hour or so doing it. It was now 4 pm and time to check how my buns were doing on the stove. After checking them, I realized they weren’t rising at all or didn’t have the expected shape and texture of what we usually get from a bakery store.

I was so frustrated and upset. I thought it would be a silly mistake to make, as this was the first time in my life to make any bread preparations. The reason I was so upset is very simple. I started preparing for this big day for the past two weeks, by reading many articles online, and watching numerous videos on YouTube about how to bake breads at home.


Second Batch

I started making buns again with some slight changes in ingredients and added water into the mixture this time. Then I continued working on my office work again for another hour or so. After that, it was 5:30pm and time to check them again before going to bed.

This time only 1 bun was completely baked, while all the rest were looking burned on the outside. The texture of the buns was very very tough and they fell apart when I tried to pick them up. I was really disappointed by the results and couldn’t sleep that night in a fit of depression. At night, I used some water to soften these buns but it didn’t help much for the betterment of my mood.


Third Batch

I stopped giving any thought about baking breads at home while working on office work the next day as well with no more than half an hour break in between. I decided to skip breakfast that day and instead I took a small bowl of instant noodles. However, after some time, I suddenly remembered that it was New Year’s Day tomorrow and wanted my first homemade bread to be ready for the big day.

I prepared this batch of buns as per the instructions given in the video and it turned out great, with all the ingredients at room temperature. It was exactly the texture and taste of homemade breads. I thought I had finally made something worth eating but to my surprise as soon as I took a bite into it, it tasted so very badly like cardboard or soggy dough breads. It was more like chewing on a thick version of soft bread sticks due to its toughness.

Thank you for reading so far. I hope that by following the steps, you were able to work on some of your personal problems. This is just a small example of what one can do to change their behaviors and improve their lives. There are many more opportunities waiting for us if we’re willing to take them with effort and work hard towards achieving our goals.
