diy - welcome

my most recent do-it-yourself project was making our front door a little more welcoming.  i forgot to take an official "before" picture.  but trust me, the house numbers and mailbox were in really bad shape.  

unofficial before photo

first, i cleaned off the dirt and as much rust as possible.  
next, i primed the numbers and mailbox twice. 
after three coats of gold and one coat of black, i was ready to get everything hung up and take my "after" pics :)  


last but not least, i hung up the "B" to the left of the door.   

i used left over paint from the shelves i put up in the dinning room {i had originally painted them the gold color but decided on black}.  the letter "B" was brought to me by ebay for eleven whole dollars.  i had ordered it a couple of months ago but had not decided on its final resting place.  

now we have a colorful and welcoming front door.

i cant wait to show you what i plan to do next out there.  
stay tuned ...
