As for me, my exterior doors (and shutters) are in definite need of a new coat of paint. When we built the house, I went with a cranberry color, but now, I want more of a country red shade. I had planned to do that this summer, but a few weeks ago the whole inside of the deadbolt just came right out with my hubby's key! I - of course - wanted all new knobs. I know I could have painted the shiny brass to antique brass, but hey, if it's broken and I have to buy a deadbolt anyway, I might as well by the whole thing. ;)
Naturally I didn't want to put my new pretty hardware on the nasty looking door, so that meant go ahead and paint it now. See Ozzy out the storm door. He's waiting to see if I'll come out and throw a ball or a stick. :)
After I sanded it, I primed it.
And here's a close-up. I was going for a wood-door look. I don't know that I succeeded, but I like it anyway!
And here it is all decked out for spring and with the new hardware. I had thought seriously about making a spring wreath, but I had several other projects going and when I ran across this wreath in Kirkland's for $19.99 - I thought "that's the wreath for me!" :)
If anyone has ever tried anything similar, I would love to hear about it!!
Stay safe until next time!
