front door makeover

Painting my front door was so easy to do, once I decided on the color. I first wanted a red door, but my husband wasn't to thrilled with the idea, so I went with classic black. Here is a before shot:

I used Glidden high gloss black and gave it 2 coats, no primer, no sanding. I just cleaned the door and went for it. Although I am not quite finished, I love the way it turned out. I still need to add my address on the door and replace that yucky door knob combo for a pretty polish silver one . Here is the after shot:

What do you think??

Well I love it! Black makes everything look classy I think. Very pretty and welcoming.

Love it! I'm planning to paint front door soon and you've inspired me to go black! That means I'll also have to do the shutters too, which I'm not so sure about though. What are you using to put the address on the door - vinyl lettering? Great job!
