This is the not so delightful color that our front doors have been for the past year and a half.
And the outside view.
If you look at the following, you’ll see where I’m headed.
It took a long time for me to get brave enough to do this. For some reason, even though we built the entire house, made all the decisions (including all of the paint colors and doing all of the painting ourselves), I found this choice very difficult- rivaled only by my agony in choosing kitchen cupboards.
Even after I had found the perfect paint and the perfect color, I was still nervous about doing it.
It’s the front of our house, for pete’s sake!
Here’s how it turned out…
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Primer Red. It took 3 coats to get full coverage but it still only took barely over a quart of paint to get both doors, both sides, painted.

We love it! What color is your front door?
