The weather is nice and I need to take advantage of it while I can. So instead of working on indoor projects(which there are many of) I decided to keep working on the outside and sprucing things up a bit. After all, I will have a long Maine winter to work on the inside.
Today I painted the front doors... Ever since I lost my lovely white screen door to a windstorm, I have hated that the two front doors don't match. The one on the right was painted red and I never bothered to paint the door on the left because it was a stained red wood color, and with the screen door over it, you couldn't tell they didn't match.
I decided to go traditional and painted them both black.
I really like how they turned out... clean and classic.
Not too many houses in my neighborhood have black doors(actually, I'm not sure if any do, I'll have to look next time we are out running), most are white, some are pumpkin colored, there is a bright yellow one, and I think the closest to black is my next door neighbor but her's is a navy blue I think. Anyway, I like them and glad that not too many houses have them.
Of course, now I'm afraid to hang anything on this door because I don't want it to get scratched up!
Have a safe long weekend,
