Luke and I had been toying with the idea to do something to our front door. Whether that meant painting the one we had, changing our screen door or just getting a whole new front door. We decided that it would be better to buy a whole new door. This door was original to the house and let's just say that it more of a closet door than a front door door.
After spending half the morning finding a door that didn't have dents or scratches, Luke was able to work on it. It took all day, but so worth it in the end. We even had help from Bob and Mark (I tell ya, best neighborhood around).
We got the front door in and I loved the way it looked. I even wondered if I should paint it the color that we had already picked because the white looked great.
Yesterday after taking such a long time to tape, I finally painted.
And I love the results. I think Oliver did too.
It's amazing how big of a difference even a door and some paint can make. We joke that we are no longer bringing the neighborhood down now that we have a little landscaping, a weedless garden and a new door. We just need to work on our grass and we'll be okay.
Thank you, Luke. Best Mother's Day present.
