I spent my Sunday stripping. AKA "The Front Door Makeover"

Wanna take a guess at how many times I had to run to the sink on Sunday because I had splattered paint stripper and it was burning holes in my skin? If you answered "a bazillion, wear gloves next time dumbass", then you are correct.


My awesome parents spent nearly all day Sunday at my house helping me strip 40some layers off paint off my front door, sanding it down and painting it again and reinstalling all the hardware.





I would be flat out lying if I said I wasn't head over heels in love with my new teal door! I had been talking about painting it since I bought the house, and even picked out and purchased the paint but just never could find time to tackle that project.

 Before: 

 After:

I still need to add my house numbers to it, but it sure does make me smile every time I catch a glimpse of it!

(If you are curious, the colors is Valspar Woodlawn Valley Haze in exterior satin latex)
