Well, there was something about our front door, it was wood and looked weathered. (sorry I did not think to do a before picture) Guess we could put a coat of varnish on it. I really LOVE, I mean LOVE RED doors but I deferred to my husband, the artist, who suggested a black door would look better with the brick. He was right, I love it.
But now the next debate. What about the interior of the door. I suggested it be black as well, after all it would make HIS job of painting it so much easier. Hmmm...he wasn't so sure. Even after showing him Kari and Kijsa's post here he was not fully convinced. But, he is a very smart man and knows that when I want something it is usually wise to listen. He did and he just finished painting the inside of the door. I love it! Here you go, you can see it too! I do think it looks oh so much nicer in person (do understand that I smeared the house numbers on purpose). I have to wait a day or so to let it cure before considering a wreath.
Oh, and about that red door...I'm thinking that the side door into the garage would look great in red! Believe it or not, there is not another place in this house that I am even thinking about painting-yet (sh!)!
