Texas heat is no joke. Our house gets that afternoon sun and our front door is almost too hot to touch around 3pm. When we bought our home 6 years ago, the front door was red. Then we painted it black. But with all that sun, the black paint was fading fast. Just as we were talking about repainting it, I was contacted by Modern Masters to try out their 'Front Door Paint'. Great timing huh?!
Modern Masters has a good website with 24 paint color options. We used their app "Front Door Paint" (available for iphone and android) which allows you to take a photo of your door and then see what it would look like in any of their colors. It was nice to see all the options before we began painting.
Of course even with all the options, I still wanted black. But this time, I wanted to paint not only the front door, but the whole garage door too! I love black as an accent and I think it brings out the coolers tones in our 'pinkish' brick.
My husband brush painted on the Modern Masters Front Door Paint Collection in Elegant (while I took pics!) The paint covers in just two coats, dries quickly to a satin finish, and is promised to never fade.
Once the paint dried, we added a little 'jewelry' to the front door-- a knocker and kick plate in nickel to match the pre-existing door handle. I love the way the paint looks with the stained wood my husband installed on the front porch ceiling.
And wow! I love the final result. It makes the front of our house more cohesive, especially since our garage door is so close to our front door.
|And.... of course I forgot to take a 'before' pic of the garage door. But I did find this one from last Halloween! So just ignore the giant pumpkin to see the original door color :)|
My tips for painting your front door? Pick a color and go for it! Rich, shiny front door paint makes such a difference and improves curb appeal! Modern Masters is especially easy to work with because it dries quickly, so you can paint and close your door on the same day.
