Fall Front Door Makeover

My house was repainted about three weeks ago. It's actually a very subtle color change- from creme siding to light green- but the slight change made my door color look a bit off. Just in time for the fall, I chose to paint our front door an eggshell black. It's looking very halloween-y with my jack-o-lantern wreath, which yes, I ended up buying from a store instead of making. I told you I wasn't crafty. Plus, I'm now 9 months pregnant, and have other projects on the list that I'd like to get done before baby time. Now I can check painting the door off my list. 
Here's a close up of the house color so you can see what I mean when I show you the old door. I can't tell you how happy I am with the paint change... it just looks so much cleaner. 
Next step is tackling that huge rhododendron bush so you can actually see the front of my house! We're finally working on the curb appeal here, something we've been neglecting till recently. It's a process. A never-ending process. 
 Here's the old front door color- the color I've been obsessed with using for accents for over a year now. 

I started taping off the small wood pieces in between the glass, and then I realized why I never tape things- because I hate it. 
But, ultimately I'm glad I did because this little one wanted to help paint. 
And voila, the finished product. I'm quite pleased. Also, paint scrapes off the glass fairly easy with a razor blade and some Windex. 
Here's a little close up of the wreath I found at Home Goods. I love how the colors pop against the black now. 

 And finally a little outside peek. 

Happy Fall!
