Remember when I was painting the exterior doors and screen doors?
The formerly dark brown (lower right corner) door is primed and ready to be painted!
Good news–especially for me—they are DONE!
The “front” door–this is actually the screen door to the entry/kitchen. Like all good Maine houses, the “proper” front door is near the living room. No one uses it unless they are going from the living room to the porch. Everyone else uses the REAL front door…into the kitchen! PS: no one has anything to fear from our pug…he only wants to love the universe!
The camera is acting weird (and for what it –a Canon G12– cost, it shouldn’t be having the problems it is currently having; I think I should buy a new memory card, as it seems to be wreaking havoc!), so the color looks off, too light.
And here is a photo from the inside/entry/kitchen side:
Better/more true color on this one. The screen door had been painted that ugly dark brown on the inside also (which is OK as a color, just not on the outside of ALL of this low ranch-style house). I used a caramel color that matches the walls. Once our carpenter finishes the new latchplate for the new door handle (a lever that my arthritic hands can actually OPEN), I’ll also paint the dark brown trim on the door jamb inside the screen door. And in a few years when the outside of the hosue needs painting, it will be a soft gray with white trim like the garage.
