I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Over the weekend I finally painted the front door. The door took about 3 coats of primer and 6 coats of glossy black (Royal High-Gloss from Ace Hardware). Ideally I would change the hardware to a brushed nickel, but I'm cheap and kept the old hardware. We also added a kick plate and a new door knocker. The only thing left is to clean up the paint on door window.

I picked up the squirrel door knocker in North Carolina for $8. I think he needs a name. Any suggestions? For now he'll just go by Squirrel (yeah, I'm really original).
