What does your front door say about you? Your door sets the tone for the vibe of your entire home! I’m here to tell you how to paint a front door in just ONE hour!
I just did it and I’m here to tell you how you can too!
With the right preparation and the right products…..it is such a fast and easy project!
First…..I want to advise you on how to choose your color.
Take into consideration the color of your home…..the brick, the roof, the surrounding paint, and trim work.
Once you have chosen a few colors…..paint a swatch of each on your door and study it over a 24 hours period. Pay special attention to it in the morning, afternoon, and evening light. As the daylight changes…so will the color.
Once you’ve decided on the color…..give your door a really good cleaning with White Lightning. Use a Scotch Brite pad or steel wool….or even an old toothbrush to really remove all the dirt and grime. Then rinse well with water.
If you are using a really light color such as white or off-white you will want to prime with BOSS in white first.
For the minimal brush strokes, I used my favorite brush… DB Mini Flat Medium brush.
I also used a small artist brush for the details work and to paint around the hardware that I DID NOT remove!!!
Yes…I am that girl….and it is ok….because my door looks amazing!!
I highly recommend you try one YESTERDAY…..they remove every ounce of possible frustration with streaky topcoats (which 99.5% of the time is actually user-error)!!!
And that is it! One (hour) and done!!!
So choose a few 8oz colors (yes 8 oz. will paint your entire door) using my link here….and test them on your door….and send me pics of your freshly painted door when you’re done!!!
