With nearly all of the house painting done, we are down to just the random bits – including the front door. It is original to the house, which makes it 75 years old – and it has at least five layers of paint on it. We just can’t add another, and quite a bit of it was peeling off anyway, so today I started stripping it down.
Green, white, yellow, red, and blue paint are coming off slowly; tomorrow I’ll sand it down and fill some of the cracks & holes before giving it a new primer coat. We aren’t sure what color to paint it yet; it’s tough because it has both blue and grey next to it on the porch so we are hesitant about introducing yet another color. It may end up white.
