The holidays are upon us and what does that mean? We need to welcome our holiday guests in style! One of the most popular autumn DIY projects is sprucing up the curb appeal of our homes and the fastest way to do that is with a front door makeover. You can use any old paint but why waste your time? Front Door Paint by Modern Masters is easy to apply and super-quick to dry. You’ll be done in just a few hours and the color will never fade. [So really, you’ll be done for years. Big bonus.] But don’t take our word for it! Check out the projects from some of our very creative friends.
Gilly of Colour Saturated has had issues with other door paints. “The biggest hassle was the dry time you had to wait between coats. I get impatient easily and so the fact that I could get this done in a day made me happy.” After installing trim for her front door makeover, she used the yellow color Optimistic. As to using Front Door Paint? Gilly shares, “I can honestly say I absolutely love the paint. I paint furniture for a living and I am very fussy about paints I work with and the door paint is such a dream.” Gilly is making more updates to her exterior so we’ll be sure to share more pics!
“Replacing the color of your front door gives you an inexpensive update that totally changes the personality of your home,” says Aniko of Place of My Taste. She redid her front door and shutters with the color Peaceful. “It really 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 say go bold with your color choice! Bright and bold never goes wrong.” We totally agree, Aniko!
Doesn’t the turquoise front door pop so nicely against the brick? Nicole of Doodles & Stitches had a door that needed some serious rehab. For the transformation, she used the color Tranquil and shared it all on her Newly Painted, Happy Door post. She started in the morning and was done by Noon. That’s a fast project to DIY for!
The weather was extremely rough on the front porch of CoCo, who pens The Crowned Goat blog. You can imagine how important it was to her to have a weather-resistant, non fade paint for her fall porch makeover! She used the color Elegant black, a classic favorite, and not only will her front door look good this fall, it will continue to look sophisticated and welcoming all year long.
Laura of Make Life Lovely always wanted a red front door and she used the color Sophisticated for her entrance redo. She shares, “I was able to turn my ho hum front door into an inviting and welcoming front door that makes a great first impression, adds a lot of curb appeal, and puts a little smile on my face whenever I come home.” We love that, Laura!
The artistic Erica Deuel of Spoonful of Imagination wanted a great front door color that had a lot of character. She used our free Front Door Paint app and found the perfect purple-blue tones of Spiritual. Erica loves the results! “Fall is so colorful with the beautiful leaves and now so is my front porch.
