Paint Your Shutters Using Modern Masters Front Door Paint!

Modern Masters Front Door Paint in color Playful | Curb Appeal Ideas | Modern Masters Cafe BlogLast fall I had a blast painting our front door with Front Door Paint by Modern Masters in the purple color Playful. The fact that the paint is water-based, glides on like a dream, and comes in lots of gorgeous, curb appeal enhancing colors made my project fun, and I didn’t have to spend all of my precious Saturday getting the job done.

Modern Masters Front Door Paint ColorsI chose the bright purple hue because we have an unusual long courtyard leading up to our front door. Plus, we have a glass storm door that always dilutes any color that we choose. Though Steve and I really like our unusual entry, I felt like I wanted a trendy, bright color that can say “artsy” as well as show up from the street.

While I was painting the door, the shutters were suddenly screaming “paint me” but cold weather moved in. So, now that we have some beautiful spring days here in North Carolina, I chose a medium tone coordinating grey called Mysterious to cover our oxidized green shutters that were clashing a bit with our new jazzy purple front door. Modern Masters has 24 Front Door Paint colors to choose from and you can also use their free Front Door Paint app to find the best colors for you.

These courtyard shutters were a painters dream. Just a light cleaning and sanding here and there, and I was done with perfect coverage in one coat. Yes, one coat! I did have to watch the weather reports to dodge the rain showers, which is typical this time of year.

I scraped, sanded, and primed with exterior primer. Then I painted two coats of Mysterious, because the white primer needed extra coverage. You can see that I constantly fought with the shrubbery trying to position the ladder just to get situated. I know our neighbors got a few good chuckles watching me try to level up the ladder with a board out of our trash.

I managed not to fall, although I was on constant snake patrol because a feisty little corn snake attempted to join me in the house as I entered for a coffee break. Then I had to go put on socks and shoes because he creeped me out.
