Painting the Front Door Serene

I finally did it. I ended up painting the front door Serene blue! You all know I’ve been waffling back and forth on the color. Should I just repaint it black?

Or go with something daring like turquoise? Maybe navy? Decisions, decisions!

When we moved into this house 12 years ago the front door was a blah beige.

I absolutely hated it.

It always looked dirty, even when it wasn’t. Plus, beige did nothing for the curb appeal of the house.

After much thought, I painted it black and it’s been that way for most of the 12 years that we have lived here.

I loved it.

Until it started to show wear and tear. You know when you are editing the front door before you post pictures that it’s time to repaint!

Last spring I started the process of what color to paint it.  Only problem was I couldn’t decide. I have a weird color of brick, so I had to be careful when choosing a color.

Then I found Modern Masters front door paint.

I fell in love with the color Serene. It’s not navy. Nor is it royal either. It’s just the perfect color of blue for my house.

Not only is it a beautiful color, it’s also fade resistant and dries in one hour. Let the heavenly choir sing!!!

Sanding the front door

Modern Masters is so easy to use.

I just gave the door a quick, light sand.

Washed it off with a damp towel, then started painting.

Isn’t it pretty?

It took two coats of paint, mainly because I was covering black paint.

Even with using two coats of paint, I still only used  1/4 of the quart of paint.

I love this color with the brick so much that I plan on painting the back door the same color too.

I am so glad that I ended up painting the front door Serene blue!

The only down side?

The white trim around the door now looks a little shabby!

If you give a mouse a cookie….. This girls work is never done.

Until next time…
