I've been painting our front formal living (?) room grey, so, by the light of the full moon and the fire of insanity in my eyes, I gave our front door a coat of grey, too. Because, I mean, what's one more thing? In the late night hours for this NON-NIGHT PERSON? Who has three tiny kids? One more thing?
It turns out, it was a very good thing.
(And I can always throw back coffee today.)
Here's a little "during" shot for you. Notice the black of night outside. I haven't see these kinds of hours since college.
And we'll do the "before" pic now, to give more of an impact, right? So, before ...
... and after! Yay! Light! Clean! Happy! Grey!
Here is a little close-up so you can see how it compares to our beige walls. It seriously changes the look of the entryway. I love it! The color I used was Gravity by Valspar at Lowe's, in Interior Super-Flat (washable, for sticky fingers). The door was stained originally, but I didn't need to sand. If I had actually planned ahead (which I never do before I paint), I would have bought a short roller and rolled it. Instead I used my cutting brush (again, no planning) and did two coats. It dried streak-free!
There you have it!
Have a lovely day!
