Front Door Developements

I can't believe I don't have one single before shot of the front door from outside! This is definitely not a complete after shot, but I'm almost there.

Still left to do before front door makeover is complete:
1) Sweep
2) Haul off that cardboard on the side
3) Fix doorbell
4) Find a new door mat
5) Get a big planter
6) Decide what to put in planter, probably a variegated leaf euonymus
7) Most important, paint the inside of the storm door

The storm door was in such bad shape that I considered just replacing it. After much scraping, sanding, wood-filling and painting, I've decided we can hold off on a new door for at least another year. If you're tuning in just now, that door color is Farrow & Ball, Churlish Green.

Another look at the before door:

Hello! I just found your blog because I'm dying over your green front door!! Can you tell me if you used eggshell or high gloss?

Hi Dorie. I'm glad you found my blog! I went with a satin finish although I was very tempted to do a high gloss. And the paint we used was color matched to Aura by Benjamin Moore. It's been 3 years and it still looks great.
