Our last house received a door makeover not too long after we moved in. The front door was lightened up with Benjamin Moore’s Wyeth Blue and an Andersen storm door was installed. I actually prefer a front door without a storm but it’s just not in the cards for this light-loving and bug-hating girl.
This door I handed over to someone who can keep the paint inside the lines. Here it is – new paint, new door knocker and a newly installed mail slot!
The old rusty metal storm door left with the painter and mid-week a wood one will be installed. Here is a a before picture. It’s impossible to tell from the picture, but all of our hardware received a professional polishing and will likely never look this good again. Made sure to take lots of pictures.
We have had to put shutters on most of our houses at this point. I was hoping this house would at least have the missing pairs tucked into a garage corner or a lab closet, but so far no such luck. Likely the ivy covering part of the house chewed the shutters to bits.
So, do I go wood or synthetic? Jury is out.
