Old Door–New Look; A Paint Fix

doormoI am often amazed at what a coat of paint can do…

A couple weeks ago out of the blue my husband decided he was going to sand and paint our front door.   He said to me, come help me pick out the color and we were off to the hardware store.

I, of course, picked out a color we had talked about several times.  One that we had considered painting the front doors of the past two homes we owned.

Before my hubs saw the swatch I was holding he guessed it…


My husband spent the next couple hours sanding our front door and topping the bare wood with a couple coats of red paint.  He did not do all the work alone.  Our handy-tot was right by his Daddy’s side to help until he got too “skweaty” (sweaty) and told his Daddy it was “too hot to be outside”.

Once again I am wowed at what a simple coat of paint can do to freshen up a space and in this case what it did for the front of our home.  The finished product is one I am in love with!
