For months now, I have been contemplating on painting our front door. It has been black for years and after replacing the door knob and lock, it looked a little shotty. A few nicks that showed the previous red, just wasn't appealing to this shabby chic gal. I love distressed, but it has to be the right colors.
Also, see how the door get's lost? That kind of drove nuts!
It's like it wasn't really there...
And of course when it is open, I really didn't like how dark it made this corner even with the light coming in.
Now look at the difference! I think it gives that cottage welcome, don't you?
I had to lighten this photo to actually see the wreath. Now look at the after...
Look at how it can be seen now...it is really one of the prettiest wreaths I've had on this door!
I lightly distressed the door to let the black come through.
Oh how I truly love this door now!
And I think Louis approves of it too.
After rearranging the living room, I knew I had to paint that door. It just didn't go with what I call my Easter colors.
So that's my little project for Monday even though the door took 3 coats of paint, lol! Shew, I don't think my knees can take much more....
Thanks for visiting and until next time, have a blessed week!
