I tinkered with the interior doorway and shared the results of my $61 makeover in a previous post:
We are all loving the foyer makeover- color makes us happy!
We wanted to keep the exterior more traditional, so I selected a color called blue-grey slate. This grey should pull out some of the grey undertones in the pink brick:
As always, I neglected to make a before pic; I found this one- featuring our realtor. Note the brass kick plate- the hardware was all mix-matched brass. The door was painted light grey- it was blah-blah.
I took care of the outdated brass with a can of rust-oleum in burnished amber.
I had this can from a previous project and it did wonders to transform the front door brass:

Halfway... When I realized I had no before picture... I stopped and got a quick shot.

And here's the side by side:
This was a quick and easy win and came
in under $20. We liked it so much that we painted the back doors the same color.
