Bye UGLY Green Front Door

I’m not a green person. I have nothing against green… 
It’s just not MY color… 🙂
So… When we bought our house, that UGLY green door was the first thing that needed to go. 


More than once while talking about our house we heard, 
“Oh, the one with the ugly green door…” 

Yep.. BYE BYE Green door
Hello, crisp lovely white door.
It’s easy to paint a front door I learned. It just takes time. 
AND lots of patience from the fiance to have to put on and take off the door knob and lock over and over.

Enter a trip to Home Depot for Kilz Primer and Behr White Exterior Paint. 
Oh.. and a paint roller, brush, etc. 


 Thank goodness we decided to go ahead and get the primer! 
It would’ve taken SEVERAL coats of the white to cover up that green

After the primer
It’s already looking better, right?! 🙂 

After the final coat of white paint. And putting the door knocker/keyhole back on. 
The knocker/keyhole back in place
We replaced the old GOLD door knob and lock with shiny new steel hardware!
The knocker and knob didn’t even match before!!! Now they do!

From old to new!
And for the final touch I added a Command Brushed Nickel Hook to hold our Welcome sign!
(A Christmas gift that we hadn’t gotten to use yet! Thanks Meg & Kenny!!)


So, what do you think? 
I know there were several who said they LIKED the green door. 
But really, with the colors of the house as they are, it wasn’t working. 
And I DIDN’T like it. Which is what matters, right?! 🙂
White is MUCH better!



Maybe someday we’ll paint the whole house and it’ll get a new color… until then, this works for me!
Can’t wait for all the Holiday wreaths and door hangings to come! 🙂

    I am painting my door soon too! I would love a new one, but unless we find a bargain, a gallon of paint is much less expensive. Your door looks great!
