Front Door Paint on This Old House

Have you ever been blown away by a design makeover? This Old House magazine shares one – and the pièce de résistance is our Front Door Paint!  The Home Solutions feature in the March 2015 issue showcases a front porch makeover by Bella Tucker Decorative Finishes that went from absolutely glum to gorgeously glam.

This Old House features Front Door Paint | Project by Bella Tucker Decorative FinishesDana and Brooks Tucker are a decorative painting studio that works on amazing projects daily for their clients. When it came to tackling their own home, they turned their talents to the dark and dreary porch that needed a serious color and pattern uplift. After painting the brick white, they painted and stenciled the concrete entrance floor and chose the color Fortunate from our fade-resistant Front Door Paint line to transform their front double doors. The eye-catching color helps all the elements come together for a beautiful new look and feel.

Oh, and by the way – they called it “the next-big-thing finish”. Isn’t it dreamy?

DECORATIVE PAINTER’S PRODUCTS

Maybe you love a bright color but need it toned down a bit?  In the alternate, have a neutral color that’s just a little drab?  Altering the color by using a glaze from our Decorative Painter’s Products is a perfect solution!

Modern Masters Extender Glaze on Front DoorBeyond the Screen door used our Extender for Latex Paint and tinted it with a dark latex color (above) in order to age her turquoise paint a bit. We think the aged and painted front door is stunning!  (below) Erin from Two Story Cottage used our Tintable Glaze (her paint store tinted it brown) to add a little oomph to her cream front door.
