Front Porch Improvements

Last weekend we got one more thing on my to do list accomplished! We painted the front door and the porch lights. Before our door was a darker shade of green than our house and it didn't stand out enough. We decided to use the same black paint from this post from one of my favorite bloggers. I love how the black pops out against the white trim!

Our front porch lights used to be black but they faded over time and were really dirty inside and out. Zak took them apart and washed them then we gave them two coats of metallic satin nickel spray paint. They now look brand new and compliment the black door nicely!

I'm not loving the ugly old milkbox in this picture! If only I could paint that too.
