First of all, let’s address these sconces. My sconces looked old and worn down from the weather. I honestly do not know what color they were before I spray painted them LOL. I took them down, removed all of the glass and cleaned with soap and water. I gave the sconce a light sand to remove any chipped and loose paint, then spray painted black. I think it took 2 light coats and maybe an hour and a half including dry time. Back on the house they went and what a transformation. This cost me no money since I already had black spray paint.
Next I started on my front door. Like the sconces, my door was worn and dull. I knew I wanted to decorate my front porch, but couldn’t see adding anything new until this was done. So I sanded and stained it an Ebony color using Minwax.
