Our front door was covered with lots of coats of paint, dark blue on the outside, white on the inside – neither of which we were crazy about, and you could tell there was SO much paint caked on there from throughout the years.  My mom and dad came into town a few weekend ago, and my mom dominated this door!  She stripped/sanded/stripped/sanded for about two days, and this was the final product!  We also got all new oil rubbed bronze hardware and got rid of the nasty brass.   The first image is of the front of the house now, second is from the interior, third is the comparison (how did I not take a photo of the house after we bought it?), and the fourth is the new light we put up above the door.   Let me know what you think!!

    Love it! I think awesome moms just can’t help but do things for their daughters. :)
