I started on the front door on Friday. I cleaned it and primed it and then started painting it yesterday. This is with one coat. It looks much grayer in these photos than it is. It is the same color as the shutters which is a gray green. I'm using Devonshire Green by Benjamin Moore.
I cleaned the garage doors and removed all the decorative hardware. The mister is painting those. This is the ugly stage with one coat of paint.
This is after two coats and I'm afraid they will take three. Darn it!
Left side has one coat and right side has two. The garage doors look greener than the shutters and front door, but it's all the same color.
The paint on these doors was in really bad condition. I painted these probably over ten years ago. The shine was completely gone and the paint was coming off on the rag I used to wipe them down. The front of our house gets full sun almost all day and it is so hard on the paint and finishes.
This side is almost done. I painted the first coat of gloss white on the trim on this one right before I lost the daylight. I didn't paint the trim last time. We just left it in the white it came with, but it had gotten quite stained over time.
The light fixture between the doors is going to be taken down and painted, too. The sun has done a number on it.
I should get all this finished and put back together today. Y'all don't know it, but I have been painting most of the week. I painted a room inside and I did a quick change on a piece of furniture. I think I need a break from the paint brushes and the paint clothes......but not for long.
I will probably share the room I painted tomorrow so be sure to come back for that. It wasn't even on my Project List I shared, but it was on my mind.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and it's a holiday weekend for some!
