Yeah we have lived in our house for almost 7 years... I finally decided decided to add a bit of style to the exterior. We've been working on the interior too but with the lack of funds the progress has been slow.
This summer we got a new front door and I finally painted it. I decided with a red door the thick molding that I love around my door would look great black. That only took a small amount of paint so then I had Matt paint the trim black. And then a couple of days ago I painted the area between the windows black too. I think it looks great. We still have to do something with the siding but that will have to wait until spring. We also need a new light fixture and I need to paint the mailbox black.I have some cool rusty barn stars that we are going to hang in the black space between the windows and I am on the lookout for some big numbers that will go right above the molding. Does anyone know where I can get some?
I have been using the Command hooks to hang things on my door. When the door was white the white hook looked fine. But with the red door the white hook was so ugly! With a little black spray paint I think it looks great!
