B & (not entirely) A: Front door

November 2009

Not entirely after: 

With a big drill and a lot of work from Scott, the house numbers finally went up.  Sadly, you can't see them from the road, and I'm not sure I'm willing to paint the numbers or the wood to fix it.  Suggestions?

See Owen in the window in that second shot?  He was supposed to be napping, but I guess he heard me go out the front door.  (Okay, that's a shade of the truth.  He peeked his head out and then disappeared before I could get the shot so I kept yelling his name until he came back...)

I wouldn't consider this an official "after" because (1) the boxwoods need some serious TLC, (2) I'd love to do a DIY treatment on the light using leftover scraps of sycamore veneer from our stair rail reno and this as inspiration, and (3) the whole house needs to be painted.

I love the before and after of this mid century house.  Do you think our neighbors would picket if we painted our house nearly black?

I love the doors! I would not paint you house numbers. They look cool. Do you have your numbers on your mailbox or on the curb? If so that is enough!
