I have long loved a red front door, but this one from Country Living has been a particular inspiration.
So with Fall in the air, I headed to Sherwin Williams (where they are uncommonly helpful) and selected the exterior Cardinal Red paint. Their “Resilience” brand saved me the trouble of priming my black door. I guess it’s a two-in-one primer and paint. Incredible paint.
Remember my original door?
The only close-ups of it are these with my little guys in front.
And now, after painting the inside door and storm door red, and spraying the kick plate and house numbers a Rustoleum metallic silver, we have this!
Here’s what it looks like when the main door is open and only the storm door is visible. (With a curious dog peeking out.)
Here’s the before and after comparison.
The whole job cost me $23. ($17 for the red paint and $6 for the metallic spray paint)
