The whole exterior of our house needs some serious TLC. Every time I drove onto our driveway, I felt like there was something I could be doing with almost no money to make it look better until we save up the funds to do all the big things that we have planned (I'll right a big post about my plans for the front).
When we bought the house the front door was cream, with white painted (peeling off) trim. It looked really tacky. I don't think it's been painted or touched up in 30+ years. The siding is this really ugly 70's yellow and the trim is brown (more pictures in this post). I don't get the whole yellow and brown thing of the 70's. It seems like it was a HUGE trend and it just reminds me of certain bodily fluids... Needless to say, there was a lot about the exterior of the house that was bumming me out big time.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to surprise David by spray painting the front door before he got home from work. I already had some blue spray paint so I spent about 15 minutes taping off the door casement and the hardware on the door, thinking that would be sufficient for over spray. Side note: sometimes I do stupid stuff like this. Learn from Lizzy, kids.
