Or rather... paint the front door.
I want to paint it SO BAD!
I don't know if you can tell.. but the paint is peeling off the front door. All because I've taped a sign to the door at one point... It obviously wasn't properly primed and painted. Now it's just a snowball effect! The door is just a boring solid slab, so the possibilities are endless with adding trim, panels, moulding etc. Just have NO idea what I want to do and what will compliment the rest of the house!
Once the door is painted I easily see the following happening:
-Painting the trim around the door
-Adding a door knocker
-Replacing the doorbell plate
-Adding panels or trim or something to the door for more visual interest
-Adding a kick plate to the bottom of the door
-Painting the area with the address numbers
-Relocating the address numbers
-Painting the railings
-Painting the porch deck
-Patching some motor in the steps
-Painting all the window trim
-Removing the shutters that are not symmetrical with the house
-Painting the eaves and underhangs
-Painting that roof pitch
-Painting the underside of the porch roof "haint blue" (A southern thing)
-Installing new porch lights
-Installing a much desired porch swing....
-Re-landscaping the front (spring/summer of '12)
-Get Dish to come remove the dish thing from the front of the house (or remove it myself)
See what I mean? one thing turns into SEVERAL!!!!
Whatever I choose I want it to add curb appeal, and be off the beaten path---to a degree. I definitely don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb, but I also don't want it to be something every Joe can pick up at Home Depot or Lowes..
