DIY Front Door Redo & Update | Before & After

I can put this on my list of DIY projects that seem like a slight change, but really make a great difference.. Our front exterior had become chipped over time & from full sun, so it was in need of refreshing.

 It looked like the prior owners had caulked OVER the top of old caulk… Definitely wasn’t pretty when I started scraping the old away..   This part wasn’t too difficult, just tedious to get all of the old caulk off, as well as scrape & sand the chipping paint.  Once it was smoothed out, I re-caulked using this:

And my go-to brand of paint, only in exterior for this job;

Of course I couldn’t do the job w/out having a foreman supervise; 

Initially I was only going to repaint the parts that were already white, but then decided to do the portion surrounding the side glass windows as well.  I’m so glad I did!  I feel like it brightened up the doorway that much more.  

My husband always asks, “why do you like to paint things WHITE so much?”… My simple answer.. I love clean, crisp lines 🙂

A cheap weekend project that turned out great!
My next task…. Deciding what color to paint the storm door!  Suggestions are welcome 🙂
