Ugly door transformation

When we first moved into our house, we had the ugliest, dingy brown front door. We could not afford to put on a new door, but I really wanted to spruce up the look. With just a little bit of wood molding bought at my local home improvement store, I was able to transform it to something beautiful.

First I sanded the old door. I filled in the peep hole with fix-all then sanded that down to make it smooth and level with the rest of the door. Once the door was completely sanded smooth and the sanding dust was wiped off, I nailed my wood molding to the door with small wood tacking nails. There were some cracks between the door and the molding so I filled those in with caulk. Next, I primed the entire door then painted in a bright beautiful red. My family thought we bought a new door when they saw it!
