When we 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. We actually really like the colors of our 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 J on board with completing another house project, we thought if we're going to go to the trouble of painting the door, we 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. My poor husband. 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-
