Drab to Fab Front Door

This is what the front entrance to the house originally looked like it…

Sweeping the leaves away, straightening and cleaning the flagstone and adding more stones found in the backyard and heavily scrubbing the door, trim and entrance were just the beginning.  But already made a huge difference!

Then I lightly sanded down the door and painted it and the surrounding trim with Behr Premium Plus Exterior paint.

(door color: Apple Polish, satin finish)

(trim color: Magnetite, satin finish)

Changed out the hardware with something with a brushed steel finish and presto-chango!

Here is the full effect BEFORE and AFTER

THAT is an entrance I want to walk through 🙂
