Making an Entrance
January 31, 2019

Before
After

Updating the front door had a huge impact on the house’s curb appeal, especially since the original door had bizarre proportions. The lower panels were too tall ( I prefer lower panels nice and low) and the upper lass panels were far too narrow. And that dusty green colour was beyond blah. So…I bought a set of standard glass french doors with a paneled bottom but customized them with moulding. I painted them Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball in a satin finish and then decked them out with new, but vintage, brass hardware. I kept the mailbox but had it cleaned up at The Door Store.
