seriously, because it's hideous.
i have never been so appalled by a door in all my life.
when we moved in, the door was peeling a bit for lack of a good stain/seal.
and after three years of thinking, i really need to sand and stain the front door, and even buying the stain, i finally didn't do anything.
every time i looked at it, it was worse and worse.
and after power washing it the other day, i actually made it look even more hideous.
didn't think that was possible.
i thought what was left of the chipping stain would all come off easily. but it barely came off.
i'll show you. but, brace yourself.
i think it's going to need some intense sanding and some hardcore paint.
(i don't think a stain would ever cover it evenly).
also, can you see the botched trim job?
imagine those lovely mitered corners (ha!) all throughout my house.
thanks, previous owner.
EXTERIOR ENTRY TO DO:
i didn't even know our patio was dirty until the powerwasher accidentally got away from me and i saw the color difference. so after hours of spraying, it went from greenish-black to the color of actual concrete.
