Yellow Door...

I know you could just scroll down to the previous post to see the before, but who doesn't like a good reminder of what was?
Here is the last shot of a black door. People doubted me when I told them I wanted a yellow door. We even had neighbors telling us just to leave it black. Nope!
The yellow looks even better then I had hoped!!
I love love love it. And it was worth the wait! The house got put on hold while Drew was laid up in bed with a hurt back! I will show you the culprit of his back in a moment. Anyway, Saturday rolled around and Drew emerged from the house to put another coat of paint on the house, and paint the door.
The pictures just don't even do it justice. It is a perfect yellow with the green of the house!
Drew also fixed out beat up door yesterday. As you can see it had seen better days. But Drew got to work to make it look brand new!
He bondo-ed the door, to take out the huge scratch marks, and smoothed out the ugly details on the middle of the door. And removed the grid of the glass at the top of the door.
It has never looked better. It looks like a brand new door.
And this is what ruined Drew's back. He dug out all of these rocks, and one by one, with the help of our AWESOME neighbors, we put each rock back. Then Drew and our amazing neighbor Dave shoveled the remaining dirt into Drew's truck and then shoveled it again into a dumpster. It was a lot of work, but it looks so good. Thanks everyone for your help!

  2. Do tell the color! It's lovely. I have a white house with green shutters. My door is now red, but I always wanted a yellow one.

  3. Awesome yellow color...nailed it! You'll have to share that color so keep it on record. Remodeling your own house is addicting...I would know. Keep up the good work.
