Painting the Front Door
Cue the angels singing...I have FINISHED the front door! My first project of 2012 COMPLETE! Wow...gosh...I just didn't think it would ever happen. Oh my gosh...who do I thank first? Let me see...my husband, Mr. AKM for always standing by me and supporting me when I'm being so totally OCD that no one else can stand me...my kids for telling me that the color is AWESOME even though they would prefer that I paint it camouflage or orange or any other color besides turquoise blue :) But most importantly I want to thank Wagner for making the most incredible paint sprayer like EVER! Seriously, having that paint sprayer made this project soooo totally worth my time! LOVE IT! You can read all about this little piece of paint spray heaven here. It took me all of 10 minutes TOPS to paint this door. It sprayed on like velvet. 2 coats and it was over...I almost felt a little cheated that I didn't get to spend more time getting to know my paint sprayer better.
So here is a before in case you forgot what it looked like...
and now...lots of photo love for you....
|Remember these nasty scratches???|
TOTALLY GONE! Isn't that awesome? I so love this color! I want EVERY door in my house this color!
Check it out in all it's glory...
I love how the colors from the rug are all tied together now. I was a bit nervous when I saw the door finished leaning against the wall in the garage but having it hung up in my entry...I. AM. IN. LU-OVE! I just love the pop of color it gives to the space don't you?
So tell me, what do you think of it? Do you think you could bring a bright pop of color to an area in your home?
