Exterior Doors Painted

I moved into my house almost 4 years ago, in fact next week will be my 4th anniversary.  I have no idea how the past 4 years went by in a blink, but they really did.

So it's high time I finally got my exterior doors painted.  I couldn't decide on a color, so Paul just installed them the way they were shipped.  They are fiberglass doors, in primer white.  Which actually looked great with my gray siding, so they didn't move up the priority list until last year.  And then it was so wet all summer that I didn't get around to getting them painted.

Anyway, Becca came out this summer and repainted the inside of my house.  I went with a bit whiter color, and I really like it.  And Sunday she came back with her boss and his portable spray booth.

Here is the spray booth being set up in my driveway.  Sunday was such a beautiful day, but it's definitely fall.  Look how the fireweed on the hill above me is all bloomed out.

They took all 9 doors down (yes, I know 9 exterior doors seems excessive, but that's how many I, sprayed them, and put them back up.  I really like how they look.  I'm still not really sure what kind of paint they used, but it dried to the gentle touch in about 15 min, and could be re-hung after about a 1/2 hour.

The doors now have a glossy surface, which nicely covers up all the dings and cement, and scrapes, etc. left over from the building process.  And the color matches the new interior paint color.

Except for the outside of the front door, which is a hot pink/fuchsia color.  It's bright and I really like how it looks against the gray siding.
