I honestly have no idea why I chose to leave the inside of my front door brown for sooooo long!!!
The moment I decided to paint it…..I couldn’t get the paint on there fast enough!
You may (or may not) know…..we are in the process of switching out all golds, creams and browns in our home to blacks, grays and white.
You can see in the photo how dark our entry way was. The saddle brown color and the brown door….along with the really dark and drab rug! I am almost embarrassed!!!
Well look at it now!
It is bright and welcoming! Oddly enough our walls are painted with a deep charcoal, which is darker than the saddle brown color. BUT……we painted the DOOR!!!! Just painting the inside of that door made all the difference in the energy!!!
Let me introduce you to Heritage Collection All-in-One Paint in Cashmere!
The All-in-One paint is just as it says! It is a paint that contains both a bonding primer AND a sealer already! We did not need to prime the door for good bonding and adherence. However….since we were going from such a dark wood to the whitest of whites….I did choose to use one coat of primer first. I then painted the door with two coats (three in some areas) of Cashmere.
This paint is like magic in a jar! It has no smell….self levels leaving zero brushstrokes…..dries quickly….and is diamond hard! And the best part of all (IMO…..”in my opinion”) is it requires NO sealer!!! This means this project took less than 2 hours from start to finish!!!! That’s amazing, people!
So a new door color….a little wall color change…and a bright new rug….and my entry has taken on a new life! Give it a try! I’ve used this paint in every single room in my home!
(See that harlequin painted feature wall? It used to be painted browns too! See the before and after here.)
