When I first made an offer on our house, it was about 75% complete. The good news was we were able to pick out a few interior finishes, the bad news was the exterior was already complete. I actually really like the colors of my house (main and trim), but the front door is another story.
Dark green for a front door?!?
And not a pretty, deep forest green but a dusty, medium, brown-based green.
Yuck! It looks like mold.
So, this began the first phase of our front door do-over plan.
I've been dying to paint the door black, like I recently did with the interior-side. The more I thought about it, the more I thought I should paint the window trim the same color as the regular trim , instead of black.
So, the final result would be similar to the interior side-
No big deal, just one more step.
Sounds easy enough.
Once I finally got on board with completing another house project, I thought if I'm going to go to the trouble of painting the door, I might as well get a storm door to protect it. Makes sense, right?
There's this cute one from Home Depot.
Or a more dramatic, oversized option. (credit Home Depot)
And then there's the subject of wreaths...
Yikes, I'm dangerous. Sadly, it's taken 3 whole weeks to get our storm door in, (apparently black=special order?!) The door is going in TODAY and I can't wait! I'll post pics of the transformation soon.
For your eye candy pleasure, here's some of my favorite front doors-
