Behind Door #1…

We FINALLY replaced our old front door! We found a nice, solid wood door on Craigslist that I was able to strip and repaint a warm, brick red color. I then spray painted the old brass hardware an oil rubbed bronze finish. Here’s a before photo of the old front door from the inside. Sorry I forgot to get a shot of the exterior before.

And here is an after shot of the interior:

We’re really happy with how it turned out, especially the hardware. I gave the hardware a light sanding with a high-grit sandpaper, and I used a spray paint with a built-in primer. It’s held up pretty well so far! There are few scratches on the dead-bolt where we put the key in, but not too bad, especially considering I already had the spray paint, so it was a free makeover!
