Painted door

Tyler took our security screen door off because it was ugly and we realized our door then really needed something.

It just didn't pop.
Our neighbors around the corner are always painting and doing cool stuff to their house and this is their door. I really like it, so let's call this our Inspiration door.
Tyler and Micah wanted to do greens rather than the browns, so I went with it, I was just happy to have another home inprovement project that Tyler was on board with. This is our door during the painting process. We all painted a little with the exception of Peyton. I did a large majority of the painting though, Tyler thinks I'm the best at this type of thing, ugh. It's ok though, he took care of Peyt so I could paint.
POP! Before we got the 2nd and 3rd coats on the door it was a bit worrisome, it looked like baby poo yellow and diarrhea green. Tyler was not liking it, I just told him to wait, it would be fine. After seeing the door Micah said that we need to paint our house now because it doesn't match. He is kind of right, I think if we paint the trim black it will tie the door in.

Some of the painters.
Tyler made me get in a picture since I did most of the painting. I know that shirt makes me look even bigger than I really am but that's ok.
Now it stands out.
I like it, what do you think?
