Now that we are door painting pros! (well actually my husband really is.)
I want to tackle our french door in the kitchen, the one we use to access the backyard.
Right now it looks like shit, I’m sorry it just does.
You can’t really tell from the photos but Sarge has once again decided to destroy a door and this one was his main target.
I was thinking a glossy black would look stunning, especially from the view outside.
White could be pretty too, but it seems like all you see these days are white french doors. I really like the boldness that comes with black, very chic.
I’m pretty sure it’ll look fabulous. What do you think? Have you painted any of your doors black?
Great now I have that song stuck in my head! : )
Trying to decide on a door knocker..hmm so many good options out there.
I’m thinking bronze, as all my other hardware is bronze.
But I’m not 100% on that as my current hardware is satin nickel and it actually goes really well with the new door color.
So first up, are some Pottery Barn options
This one is pretty classic and it can be monogrammed! I like that.
Then there is this adorable knocker with a cute little bird perched on top. I don’t know if I can fully commit to tweety though.
I could go more vintage and get this guy off Etsy. I’d still have to spray paint it bronze though.
Here’s a rustic one I found on Amazon
Another rustic one from eBay
Hahaha I’m sorry, I had to put this one up!
I think I prefer the cleaner lines, like this knocker by Baldwin
Oooo Yes! I think I found a winner! Restoration Hardware’s Ring Door Knocker
Here it is in satin nickel too
Help me pick one! Which one is your fave?
we he did it!
Our front door is now a pretty gray blue! Isn’t it gorgeous! I’m in love.
In case you forgot this is what our door used to look like, kind of orangey and scratched to all hell, courtesy of Sarge our pug.
And here’s how it all went down…
First step! Sanding!
We had the primer tinted to our color, which is key.
Then we puttied any imperfections.
This stuff is bad ass and drys super fast!
Next up! Sanding again! Woah we did a lot of sanding.
We chose Benjamin Moore Wedgewood Gray at150%
After another good sanding, Ryan finally sprayed the finish coat. Look at my man in action.
We even did the interior side blue, I think it totally brightens up the room.
Next up I want to get a retractable screen door (Thanks Jessica for the recommendation!!), update the door hardware and add a cute door knocker.
Hopefully my bank account will recover soon so I can make some purchases!
