....as recommended by those awesome Home Depot guys...left her door on the hinges and started painting! Heck ya! I can totally do that! So I did.
Here's my door before...
(Can you tell it's green? You can kind of see it behind the screen door...)
And here is my lovely, glossy, black door now!
Ah, I love it, love it, love it! I still need to clean some paint off the window, but this was so easy! I used Sand Deglosser to clean off the goop and sand my door. Then, I used a small foam roller and a paint brush for the inside of the windows and the boxes on the bottom. I had painters tape around the handles and when I went to pull it off, some of the paint came off. I put some painters tape back on and quickly dabbed the spots with a paintbrush and then immediately took the tape off...perfect!
Aren't my flowers purty? I still don't know the name of these beauties...but I like 'em!
It took my hubs 2 days to notice our new black door! He goes in through the garage, so I can understand why it might have taken him a little longer to notice, but still! TWO days!
And, after he noticed it, he asked me when we're changing out the gold hardware for some silver. Sheesh. A job is never done!
But don't worry honey, we'll change it soon. Very, very soon.
