It is time to tackle the front door. The door itself is fine, I stripped it and replaced the chipping wood putty that was in it and repainted it a couple of years ago..but I just couldn't seem to get myself to start on the frame trim. I didn't know where to start.

Obviously there are alot of places TO start..maybe that was part of the problem.
Anyway, so when the door guy was here the other day I asked him if I could pick his brain for a bit after he was done and, he being one of the nicest door framer guys I ever met (as wella s the only one) stayed to show me what I needed to do to fix the woodwork and what type of trim to do.
So I showed hime what I had picked up from Home Depot

and he agreed that it would be a perfect finish molding for the exterior! YAY!
So next week I will begin to pull the rest of hte vinyl down and pull the old torn up molding out...and begin on the door. I am scared that I will muck this up royally but I have never been one for not taking a chance, right

Marye you are so talented. I am sure it will be great. Even if it is less then perfect in your eyes it will be better than how it is now.
