The before. Meh, nothing special here. Totally worn out looking and such an ugly sage green. It came with the house and we put up some 'wallpaper for windows' for privacy thanks to a Home Show conversion where HGTV star Peter Fallico told us to do it (I actually went up and asked him). Speaking of which, where is he nowadays?
New glass inserts in! Not bad I say, not bad at all. It was either this or some ornate lion motif. (I just shivered because I think my neighbours got that one). R taped and primed the doors with Benjamin Moore super duper exterior primer stuff.
The after! Painted with Benjamin Moore Onyx (Aura Exterior Paint in Semi-gloss). I think the black looks fantastic. Now we're not quite done as we have to paint out that white weather stripping all around the door. R claims we can't use the same paint...I think we can. Must consult a paint person because now we are at a standstill. But I like the black...makes my pink flowers look even better. I'm craving new door handles and a new exterior light fixture. Suggestions anyone? All images via me.
