Front Door Face Lift

I love a good grey, black + white combination for pretty much anything.  Our house is light grey with a burgundy front door and shutters.  I have wanted to paint the front door and shutters for a while now and we're finally hoping to get it done in the next week or so.  In fact, I got home late last night from a quick trip to Chicago for work, and all of the shutters had already been taken off the house (woo hoo)!  The paint on our front door is chipping, so it needs to be repainted anyway.  I figured we might as well just make it what we really want it to be.  Here are some of my inspirations:




I would also love to have a black storm door. This is the one I have my eye on.  I like that it's full glass from top to bottom (and that'll help insulate our house better).  We're planning on getting a new light fixture for next to the front door, too.  Probably something like this one.


Finally, some new house numbers.


We got the paint over a month ago but I was told we couldn't start another project until we finished the ones we had already started. ;)  I think this will be a relatively quick & easy way to make a big impact.
