home decor Painting the Front Door Serene March 20, 2018 This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclaimer for more information. I finally did it. I ended up painting the front door Serene blue! You all know I’ve been waffling back and forth on the color. Should I just repaint it black? Or go with something daring like turquoise? Maybe navy? Decisions, decisions! When we moved into this house 12 years ago the front door was a blah beige. I absolutely hated it. It always looked dirty, even when it wasn’t. Plus, beige did nothing for the curb appeal of the house. After much thought, I painted it black and it’s been that way for most of the 12 years that we have lived here. I loved it. Until it started to show wear and tear. You know when you are editing the front door before you post pictures that it’s time to repaint! Last spring I started the process of what color to paint it. Only problem was I couldn’t decide. I have a weird color of brick, so I had to be careful when choosing a color. Then I found Modern Masters front door paint. I fell in love with the color Serene. It’s not navy. Nor is it royal either. It’s just the perfect color of blue for my house. Not only is it a beautiful color, it’s also fade resistant and dries in one hour. Let the heavenly choir sing!!! Modern Masters is so easy to use. I just gave the door a quick, light sand. Washed it off with a damp towel, then started painting. Isn’t it pretty? It took two coats of paint, mainly because I was covering black paint. Even with using two coats of paint, I still only used 1/4 of the quart of paint. I love this color with the brick so much that I plan on painting the back door the same color too. I am so glad that I ended up painting the front door Serene blue! The only down side? The white trim around the door now looks a little shabby! If you give a mouse a cookie….. This girls work is never done.
