Paint doors with Curb Appeal paint from DecoArt to give your front porch a makeover.
The sun and weather had really taken a toll on the decor on my front porch. I made the entire area look new again with just paint! Curb Appeal is an outdoor paint from DecoArt that provides durable, lasting coverage, often with just one application of paint! I painted these items two years ago for Decoart, and it still looks vibrant and bright a whole year later.
Supplies Used to Paint Doors: (affiliate links included)
- Curb Appeal Paint in Colonial Black and Modern Red
- Painter’s Tape
- Bates- Paint Tray Set, 4 inch Paint Roller, Paint Tray, Foam Roller
Step one: Wipe dust and dirt off the doors. I use a hose to spray the doors down and then wipe them dry to get any stuck leaves, snail shells, etc. off the wood.
Step two: Use painter’s tape along the edge where the glass meets the wood. You could just scrape the paint off the glass later but this prep work makes clean up easier and faster later.
Step three: Start with the trim near the glass. Use a narrow brush to get paint into the notches of the wood trim.
Step four: Use a wide brush to paint the long, flat parts of the door.
Step five: Use a foam paint roller to apply a second layer of paint to the door. This will help provide an even, smooth finish.
Step six: To update the planters, wipe them with a dry cloth to remove flaking paint and dirt. Apply a layer of paint, and once it has dried add a second layer of paint.
Step seven: Add a pop of color to metal decorative accents with paint. Add two layers of paint to the metal bird.
I really love how just a bit of paint makes my front porch look refreshed and new again! I used Curb Appeal on my courtyard doors, too, and you can see that makeover by clicking HERE.
