Summer Spruce Up: Front Door Painted
post), there was too much white at the entry. I knew I wanted to create contrast, so I painted the door the same almost black color that I painted the shutters. You can read about that post here. But first, prep work. I cleaned the surfaces really good and allowed them to dry. Then I taped off any areas that I didn't want to get paint on like the glass, the trim and the handle.
This will help to provide better coverage when painting with the dark color. It doesn't have to be as dark as the paint but it helps to be somewhere in the middle. I ended up with a medium gray.
Next up, new lights, porch floor painting and my plants. More to come soon. Thanks for stopping by!
