After researching what type paint to use online, I decided to go to Lowe's and get a quart of Valspar exterior semi gloss paint and had them color match to the Benjamin Moore Wythe blue I loved so much. The quart was around 15 bucks and it gave be plenty of paint for the other side! I might to the back door too with so much left over!
I first cleaned the door really well to remove all the dirt and since the paint was so smooth already, I decided not to sand.
I applied 4 thin coats with a brush and currently, the door is cracked open as it dries. Its a gorgeous day here in Texas so I would suggest doing a project like this when its not too hot or cold out :)
I did it all while my babies took their nap. This is a fun way to give your house a little personality in just a few hours!
Here are some before, during and afters. Our front porch is still a work in progress, so is our whole lawn for that matter (thats why I didn't show any "full body" shots :)
Pardon the wet spots, I had just watered our ferns.
The wall going up our stairs is in the same color. I will show ya'll more of that once it is finished. What do you think? What color are your front doors?
