home improvement, the front entrance

I finally got around to improving the front entrance to our house. I guess it got embarrassing enough for me to have people see it. The doors were very worn and the paint was chipped. As a matter of fact, my 2 kids painted it for me years ago, even picked out the paint themselves ( a version of white!).


New white paint on the trim and a blue-ish gray for the doors.

What really surprised me was that it took a whole day and a half to finish it. I thought it would take only a few hours. Of course, everything had to have 2 coats of paint. I think it looks so much better. I bought some new rugs that had blue and rust and dark brown to finish the look.
