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 discovered how much the green paint had faded over the past 4 years when I moved the shutter dog.

The pair at the front of the house were definitely not a dream.

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.

What’s Haute for Front Doors!

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

Metallic Copper Paint Door featured in Oprah magazine

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!

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.

Tintable Glaze by Modern MastersBoth 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!
