Remember that house on your street with the cute red door? Of course you do! There’s nothing more memorable than a prettified front door. After all, it can often be the only distinguishing factor between your house and all of the other ones that look just like it. Breathe some new life into your front door for a whole new look. The best part? All that you need is some paint, hardware and a bit of elbow grease!
A new lick of paint can provide your door with a personality all of its own. Here are some steps on how to give your entrance door a great new lease on life:
First of all, you need to choose a colour to your liking. Who cares about the colour of your roof or your interior? Let your imagination run wild when choosing a paint colour for your front door. Turquoise, yellow, black and, of course, red can be fantastic paint colours. However, don’t restrict yourself. You can go as bold as indigo or a bright lime green! The sky really is the limit. Here’s how to paint your front door.
Note: If you notice any paint drips, wait until the paint has dried, then sand down the dried drips and give it another coat of paint. To avoid paint drips, avoid over-saturating your paintbrush with paint.
Pretty isn’t it? The wreath on the door isn’t a Christmas decoration; it’s one of these extra added touches:
Another cute way in which to dress up your front door is to paint the door frame in a contrasting colour to the door itself. This is a great way to make your front door really stand out! Now that you’re armed with a ton of creative ideas for your door, it’s time to get down to your local Jack’s Paint & Hardware store for all of the paint and hardware that you will need for this exciting DIY project.
