I will show you how to paint front door from beginning to the end.
If you dropped in here last week, you must have seen this beautiful blue door while I shared my front porch decor for fall. I painted my front door couple of years ago but never got to share it. Then I painted it again couple weeks ago as I wanted to see a new, fresh color on my door. So today I am going to show you how easy it is to transform your door from blah to amazing in no time. I know some of you might think that painting the front door is a huge time committing painting job to do, but I am going to tell you that it is not. It is easier than you think:-)
Here is a before of my door. Of course, I forgot to snap a picture of it before I started painting but here is an image of my Christmas front door:-) It was kind of green, but I was ready for a change. Replacing the color of your front door gives you an inexpensive update that totally changes the personality of your home. And if you are familiar around here, I love changes:-) A lot.
So let’s roll and let me show you how easy it is to paint your front door.
- front door paint – I chose MODERN MASTERS – PEACEFUL BLUE
- flat brush ( I used a smaller and larger one as well)
- painters tray
- painters tape
- wet rug
Have you ever heard of Modern Masters FRONT DOOR PAINT? Oh my goodness. I was so happy when I discovered them as they have an excellent color collection for front doors. My kind of colors. All of them are bright and beautiful. For some reason, I am leaning towards blue shades this year ( check out my blue hallway) so I went with Modern Masters Peaceful blue color. These paints are available at some Lowes or online as well. The paint is not– fade and weather resistant and that is awesome!
PAINT FRONT DOOR
- I slightly sanded my door and cleaned the dust off.
- I took off all the hardware to ease my work
- Then I taped the glass and the white boards off around my door to make sure I don’t mess those areas up with blue paint
I started painting the middle cassette and nicely went to cover the full door with paint.
I went on with one coat then I gave another coat to it to finish it beautifully. It relly only took me maybe an hour to paint my front door on a beautiful Tuesday night with a glass of wine while my boys were running around outside:-) I wanted to give my shutters the same sweet finish as well, so I went ahead and covered them with the same paint color. I could take off my shutters, but I chose not to. I taped around the shutters and painted them being installed:-) It worked out well! For the second floor’s shutters, we used tall ladder.
I loved the outcome. I loved the new fresh color. It was an easy update that you can do, too! After the painting was done, all I needed to do is to decorate my lovely front porch. Don’t you think that this gorgeous blue adds a perfect shade to my fall porch decor? Ah, I love it!
I say try to go brave with your color choice! Bright and bold never goes wrong:-)
