One of the projects that we did this weekend was to paint our front door.
It was painted red several years ago and although I loved the color, I was ready for something new.
I wanted something bright and different so I gave my family some blue options. They chose the blue they liked best, which we call Tardis Blue because it reminds us of Doctor Who's Tardis. It is actually Valspar "Deep Space" at Lowe's.
The hubs and Eve got busy painting and here is what our process looks like:
|I never buy drop cloths, I use old sheets!|
Now side by side:
I decided I wanted the white window frames painted this time and I am glad I did. I will tell you though, that they are plastic and the paint had trouble sticking. Looking back we should have primed them first.
We love how it turned out. The color is so bright and changes the appearance of our front porch. It's amazing what a little can of paint can do to change how your house feels and looks.
I made the wreath a few months ago, you can find out how to make it here.
