The Front Door That Hits Me On My Way Out

 If the multi-toned yellow, beige, and pink walls in my hallways aren’t bad enough, the sage front door really hits you on the way out…and not in a good way.
It’s time to break out the paint, in a really big way. 

I love a great paint-over, in half a day you can have an entirely different space! See this awful before of my entry hallway? *gag* Now do you see what I mean by bad multi-toned colors?

Sadly the door from the outside is nothing special either. It really lacks personality and style…not the greatest first impression when guests come a’knocking. 


My front door is getting a much needed style boost with this fantastic new product from Modern Masters called Front Door Paint. They have this really neat App for iPhone and Android  that allows you to see the color in action before committing. Perfect for a person like myself with huge paint commitment issues. I usually have to paint an entire wall before I know whether I like the hue or not… this App allows me to make a choice without having to paint half the door 3-4 times! 

I chose a stunning blue called Peaceful from their emotion based color wheel selection…after all, with three kids, I need all the peace I can get! *chortle* That and I’m just a sucker for all things blue…

I realize that it is unconventional to paint the door both inside and out the same color, but why not use your paint to its fullest? Waste not want not… Plus I love this paint! It goes on easily, dries quickly, never fades, and there is enough to paint several doors! So painting the inside and out seemed like a no-brainer. 

2 hours later, I have a new door inside and out, and another 3 hours later my hallways stopped looking like someone puked in my house. I selected a light grey for my hallways to match my new “peaceful” vibe.

Well, what do you think? Huge difference right?
I still have plans to swap out the light fixtures, and perhaps do a little accessorizing both inside and out, but I may stop at this paint-over for a little while and just enjoy it as is! 

If you want to give your front door an update, Front Door Paint is available at selected Lowe’s and Ace Hardwares as well as online via Amazon or the Modern Masters online shop.  

If you are loving my new front door, I have great news for you… you could be the owner of your very own selection of Front Door Paint!! I’m running a giveaway right here on the blog! Someone is about to up the ante on their exterior. 😉

    Love the door and hallway colors. Did you remove the hardware before painting the door?

    Ursula! This is a FAB-tastic makeover. I love how your door is now a focal point instead of an after-thought…and I’ve heard such great things about MM’s front door paint. I might need to beg our landlord to let us paint ours! Thanks for playing along with the blog hop on my Thinking Closet FB page. I heart your blog!
