That combined with the moisture rotting out the wood made for an ugly entryway.
After Jeff pressure-washed the siding and shutters, I clambered up the ladder and got to work!

I fought against the red front door for a while, having had one at our old house, and it just seems cliche. Ultimately, though, we decided that red just suits me and brown suits Jeff and we may as well go with it!
And here's a bonus picture of Hershey, showing you how much she likes the transformation!
