While we were painting our walls, I decided to just jump right in and paint our front door. When we moved in, our door looked like this. I could not handle it any longer. It was unpainted and weathered and just a mess… (also gotta love those brass fixtures).
I browsed Pinterest and saw that black front doors were a popular trend. I did my research, saw the before and afters and just decided to go for it.
I made a trip to Lowes, bought black paint and got to work.
After about five minutes into the project, I knew I hated it, but decided to continue since I had already purchased the paint.
Well here’s some photos for you.
Nathan had not even finished hanging the door and I was already pricing out how much a new one would cost…. I absolutely hated the door and thought it looked too harsh.
So less then 48 hours later my mom and I painted it back to white. We used the same color as the trim in in our house: Snowbound by Sherwin Williams.
Much Better :) We even got rid of the brass handle and replaced the light fixture.
Now all the door needs is a wreath !
