My friend Lisa had time off of work for vacation and said that she wanted to help me paint my front door. Can't argue with that! I had already put putty in the holes the night before, so Lisa and I got started by removing the hardware, sanding, priming and finally put on two coats of turquoise paint!
|Ready to Paint!|
|Stopped by the Paint Store for some Riviera Paradise!|
|Primer first...it was a little brighter than the actual color.|
|LOVED it immediately!|
|It only took one coat of primer!|
With two people to do one door and plenty of primer left, we decided we might as well throw in the back door too!
|Sanding the back door was MUCH more work than the front had been.|
|Primer is done!|
|1st coat goes on...see how it's a little darker than the primer?|
|Priming the back door.|
|2nd coat is on front door!|
Isn't it crazy how just a little paint made the front of my house look completely different? I'm so happy that my pots match perfectly too!
Since we are living in a Fixer Upper, there are always projects that need to be done. Do you have something that you want to paint or a project that you 'd like to get started?
