It's a small thing but...

After: a new knocker, lock and doorknob and the mail slot is now painted to match

There is nothing like a freshly painted front door. Our front door was a fairly decent solid door made from medium brown not-great-quality wood.
Before: the plain front door, old caramel wall colour and awkward shelf on the wall

I filled in the scratches and painted it white to match the trim, and Bradley added a new brushed nickel lock and door knob. I added a matching knocker and all it needs now is a fall wreath. I'd like to make something with acorns... I've always wanted to make this one, there isn't a picture of the finished wreath, but perhaps you remember it. The leaves are also velvet.
After: this corner is much brighter now, especially in the afternoon when the sun comes down the hall from the back of the house

Looks amazing! What a difference.

Oh, and, speaking of wreaths ... now you have a whole new house in which to place the candy wreath I made you last year (if you didn't eat it, that is ... I think ours became mummified from hanging on our front door, so I'm hauling it out again this year.)

I love your paint job. It's amazing how it transforms the door and that whole corner!
