diy … shut the front door

I believe the entry way of a home sets the tone for the rest of the house.  We try to make it as welcoming as possible with flowers and a place to hang your coat.  Colour and artwork may be added to the walls, but often the front door is missed, left blank…we don’t see it…and we should.

So here is an easy weekend project that will instantly add some personality and character to your home. It’s time to bring some life into our entry ways by painting the interior door.

This is THE project for those of you that are looking to add a punch of colour to your living space, but have a fear of commitment when it comes to colour.  It’s a small amount of colour that can be as subdued or as bold as you want.  It could even be black.

Best paint for the job: All doors are different.  Talk with your local paint supplier who can help you select the right paint for your door.  Paint with some gloss (semi-gloss, pearl or satin) are the easiest to clean in high traffic areas.  But avoid paints that are super-shiny (high gloss)―they tend to reveal even the tiniest nicks and dents.

Here are a few samples that show just how much life can be added to a room with just a little paint.  I love it!  I’ll be adding this project to my ‘to do’ list.  Will you?
