The first thing I noticed when I first pulled up to my new house was that hideous bright blue front door! YUCK! I couldn’t wait to fix it!
Painting projects are a lot of fun (mostly) because it’s an inexpensive way to make a big impact. Allison and I have both been talking about painting our front doors red, so we teamed up this weekend to tackle it. We met up at the paint store, picked our color, and headed straight for her house to slap on a few coats. “Few” is a bit of an understatement… her doors were previously painted in a high-gloss dark brown, so it took at least 7 coats of paint. I actually lost count. When we first put it on, the red looked more like a mauvey pink, but end in the end, it tuned out great.
See for yourself… this is Allison’s before and after:
Luckily, painting my front door was a lot easier possibly because it was previously painted in a flat finish and the color was a lot lighter. Two coats later, here is the finished product! I am so happy with it!
Happy home-improving, All! :)
