I wish I had a "before" shot to show you what a difference a couple of coats of paint made for the interior of my front door. I realize now that I never included the original white door in pictures because it was so ... blah. This past weekend I set aside time to transform it from boring to beautiful and I couldn't be happier.

It took four hours and $30 and the difference is dramatic. My door is the first example shown above — the blue brightens up the entire room. I don't know why it didn't occur to me sooner to paint the door, since I am a firm believer in the transformative power of paint. This is one makeover that anyone can achieve!
