In celebration of National Painting Week, I’ve partnered with Sherwin-Williams to bring you a fun project that I’m super excited about. When we moved into our current home a few years ago, the first thing I noticed was the faded front door. The green paint looked dull, and definitely not what I would consider inviting. My first thought was to paint it a fresh and vibrant color to liven up our front entrance. Unfortunately, we live in a development that requires everyone to adhere to the same color scheme, so my plan for the front door took a back seat.
I didn’t want to spend another summer with the same faded front door. In order to match our current paint color, we used the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® phone app. One of my favorite features is how the app can color match the paint colors in a photo. This helped us narrow down our color choices before heading to our local Sherwin-Williams store to select the paint.
1. Since our door was already painted with latex paint, we didn’t need to do any heavy sanding or priming. We also don’t have any hardware on the door besides the doorknob, so we decided to keep it on the door and simply cover it.
5. Next, we used a roller to apply a coat of paint on the edges and flat surfaces of the door. Since the new paint color was very similar to the previous one, we only needed one coat of paint to do the job.
The door looks a lot brighter, and the entryway looks vibrant and welcoming. Although I would have loved to test out some fun colors, I’m pleased with the end result, and I look forward to sprucing up the space this summer.
How will you celebrate National Painting Week? I’d love to hear from you!
