Before And After: My Front Door

Yes, I’m embarrassed.  My front door looks a bit weathered.   I’ve been planning to clean it up for longer than I’m willing to admit.

It took about two hours (over a two day period).   One hour for the first coat of paint:

I let it dry for 24 hours and then applied a second coat of my favorite paint in the world, Benjamin Moore.

AFTER. Tarrytown Green HC-134, Benjamin Moore Paints

It’s warmer and inviting.  Goes great with red brick.  The black door was pretty in its day, but this color is welcoming.IMG 6672

Here’s a close-up of Tarrytown Green.  It’s a fantastic green hue.  I keep finding myself buying things in this color.
