I finally finished painting the exterior doors and base of the house! It was a much bigger job than I anticipated but I am so happy to be done. I decided to be bold and go for the orange door. I love it! It is so warm and sunny and inviting and much better than the pink that was there before. We also painted over the barney-pink/purple rock base of the house. I replaced "Barney pink" with "Hulk green," no joke. Although Hulk is kind of a pukey color, it looks fantastic on the house. The base is no longer a focal point but blends into the background just as you would hope for a rock base.
I will try to get some before and after pictures up. I am very pleased with my new curb appeal! Also, I have to mention my MIL is awesome and helped me do all the dirty work. Thanks Kristin!
