The front door..

The front door of the house had me in knots... 

As the painters neared completing painting the entire house, I still hadn't really decided on the fate of the front door. I am usually not very adventurous but really loved the idea of a black door. The painters had already coated it white and despite the girls pleading with me not to do it, I gave the painters the go ahead for a black glossy front door... I bit my fingernails that day...

 But i am delighted with the finish...So shiny, glossy and gorgeous!

I initially thought I'd change the brass door handle but i think it will stay.. I quite like it against the black.. They just painted the outside of the door...I was too undecided about the inside - so it remains white...

The VERANDAH is half complete... It should be finished within the next couple of days..
I have been wandering around it aimlessly, gazing at it from every angle, resisting the temptation to share until it is complete...Stay tuned..

Thanks for coming past

  4. I love your choice of the glossy black - very elegant. I think keeping the white for the interior was a good choice too :)
