Painting a front door is one of the fastest and easiest updates we can make to a home’s curb appeal and there are a myriad of options available, especially from Modern Masters. The front door is one of the first things our guests see, so why not make it inviting? You can paint a front door with a lively color for an added dose of personality or a more serious hue that compliments the exterior paint colors. Below are six fantastic projects from three of our product lines to help inspire a transformation for your front door. It may be the change that makes you fall in love even more with your home — or sell it faster!
METALLIC PAINT COLLECTION
Our Metallic Paint Collection adds a shimmery zest to a front door — and Team Oprah agrees! Our Copper Metallic Paint paired with Kelly-Moore Paint’s Inky Stiletto on the trim is a gorgeous combination featured in an Oprah magazine article entitled Six of the Prettiest Front Doors. 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!
Beyond 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.
Both results are fab! Glazes will have an “open time” to ensure you have some time to work the tinted glaze to get the results you’d like. Be sure to have your local retailer guide you as to which glaze product will work best with your project!
FRONT DOOR PAINT
Creative customer Sarah Desjardins chose our Front Door Paint in Spontaneous to compliment the warm, earthy tones of her home. BEAUTIFUL!
One of the hottest products we offer is our Front Door Paint. Fade-resistant and a breeze to use – what could be better? The gorgeous door colors range from classic to vibrant and there’s a hue for everyone. If you’re torn about which color to go with, take a walk around your neighborhood for a bit of local flavor and inspiration!
Artist Julie Young used the color Calm from our Front Door Paint line to paint her double front doors in California (above) while Amanda Stamper chose the Cheerful hue (below) for her inviting entry. Be sure to check out Amanda’s post on painting a front door in her Dreamsicle Sisters blog.
Wouldn’t you want to take these doors home? You can – or a variation of them that is perfect for you! Painting your entire exterior would be a challenge but giving your door a new look is a doable afternoon DIY. Hope we’ve opened the door to a world of ideas for you!
