Painting Nightmare...

My last post was on front door love...
We've encountered a front door 
This is why we usually just do things ourselves...
Don't you hate it when hire someone to do a project to eliminate the headache of doing it yourself, but then you are left with a much larger problem?
I know every time we start a project there is a good chance of a few problems, but the painters we hired were so MESSY!
It's kind of a nightmare!
They will be back to fix quite a few of the problems, but just to give you an idea of what we are dealing with: They ruined both doors, paint is all over the porch, on my door hardware, on my deck (that I had already stained for the summer), on our light fixtures, they put all of their equipment on our outdoor furniture & cracked the tiles in the table & the list goes on & on...

The paint job itself looks great from the road, it's just a few of the little things that seem to add up to quite a lot when it comes to fixing them!

Here is my house...

Not exactly the after I'd hoped for :(
I'll keep you posted & hope this painting nightmare will soon end!

Front Door Love...

We will also be getting our front door painted with the rest of our house.  I've always had a white door & can't decide if I dare try something new.  

Here are a few of my inspirations from Pinterest...
I love the color, hardware, & numbers on this door...so cute!

This one is so bright & fresh, but I love the molding around it the most!

I also LOVE the molding around this door.
I will probably be painting my door black.  If I don't like it...I  guess I can always paint it again!
The problem I'm having now is that if I don't like my house it's a little harder to fix.
I've had the hardest time picking out paint colors!  I hope the one we picked isn't too dark...it's so hard to tell what it will look like on the house.
