The day is finally here, I’m posting my front door makeover! WOOHOO! I’ll show you how I painted my front door with DecoArt’s Curb Appeal paint in two hours!
I’ve been wanting to paint my front door for years, but was a little intimidated about it. I know crazy right?! But it’s kinda a big deal. I didn’t know what color to choose, if the paint would hold up well. But after asking other bloggers who’ve used the paint, how they liked it and if it held up well. All of them loved it and said it held up great, no chipping or fading from the sun.
So let’s get started!
Front Door Makeover Supplies Needed:
- DecoArt Curb Appeal Paint – Colonial Black
- Painters Tape
- Paint Brush
As you can see this area REALLY needed a makeover. No curb appeal here at all. But first I had to get those front steps painted, ASAP!
After I finished painting the front steps, it really inspired me to get started on that front door.
Step 1 – Prep Door
Since this door has never been painted and it’s metal the prep was pretty easy. I went over the door with a Clorox wipe.
Step 2 – Tape Door Off
Next it’s time to tape the door off, since it only has one window on the front this part was pretty easy. I used Frog Tape brand, which it the best, no bleeding!
Step 3 – Pick Paint Color
This was a pretty BIG decision for me, I went over this for months. Testing out colors. I love a classic white door, and I think everything POPS against. The Cape Cod was another big contender, but in the end I decided on the classic black door. Especially after painting the steps, I knew the black was the best fit for now.
Step 4 – Paint
Now it’s time to start painting!! I outlined the door first, then started filling it in. I waited two hours for it to dry, then added my second coat. Two coats were all I needed!
With the one bottle of Curb Appeal paint I was able to paint my front door, the top of the front steps, and my parents front door. This paint covers great!
To finish the door off I found the “Our Home” plaque at Michale’s on clearance for $5.00. I put some heavy duty command strips on the back, so I wouldn’t make any new holes on the door.
I am beyond excited with how my front door turned out! I think it makes such a difference with the look of the front of the house. I usually keep my front door open all day so the black really fits in with the inside of the house as well.
DecoArt has pinned a TON of front door makeovers on their Pinterest page, head over!
