This has been on my To-Do list ever since we moved into our house 3 years ago, to paint our chipping front door and give it some love. After all, it’s cool as hell, with glass paneling and a built-in bell.
I originally thought of painting it green, and giving the house a pop of color…
I stepped back, checked out the progress and quickly aborted that plan, just can’t commit to a bright green door on a full-time basis. I would love it some days and hate it all others.
So moved on to plan B. The inside of the door is painted with Chalk Paint® in Graphite. I decided to keep it consistent and just add a pop of color with the numbers.
The original numbers were black, and had to be primed before applying the spray paint of the desired fluorescence. Since I love Chalk Paint® and all its capabilities, i decided to use it as the primer.
Next, one and one half coats of Chalk Paint® on the door, and voila! I now have a sassy, sexy, front door that I will love to come home to year-round.
I like seeing my pieces in the nytimes!!! Sold this lucite coffee table to Teman & Teran last summer at the flea.
