Coral Painted Front Doors
You guys! We’ve been waiting to post these fun cheery coral painted front doors since the winter! Aren’t they PERFECT for summer!? Such a fun color and compliments my gray and white striped porch concrete so well! I love how these turned out.
I miss my mustard yellow sometimes, it’s always been my favorite color. Here they are all decked out in Valentine’s Day decor… I guess I have a thing for pink, too!
door & SHUTTER PAINT
Can you believe I only used 1/2 of this bottle to paint both doors? Most of the doors only required one coat, busy mom win! This formula is specifically made for doors and shutters so the usual prep (sanding and/or priming) is omitted, which is a win-win for fellow lazy painters who also dread prep work! 😉 The ONLY prep I did to paint my front doors was wipe them down and tape off the little windows inside but if you have 30 extra minutes then we highly recommend liquid masking tape, it’s a game changer!

How to Paint Front Doors
We took a poll on Instagram to see if we should keep the doors two different colors…haha! Only one of you voted YES 😉 Anyway, paint these doors was a cinch and I let the paint do all of the work for me! No, I didn’t take them off the hinges, no I didn’t spray them, yes, I simply painted with a small hand brush.
- Prep the doors by washing them with warm soapy water and let dry completely.
- Tape off around door handles and/or windows.
- Using an angled brush, paint any crevices first.
- Then, roll over other flat areas of the door with a paint roller.
- Add second coat if needed.
- If your door is exposed to the elements, be sure to seal with a clear polyurethane!
- Let dry completely and enjoy!
Truly easy and I adore the after color! So fun and vibrant on our old little farmhouse. Loving the bright colors! Curb Appeal has amazing coverage and how satisfying is peeling off tape? 😉
We have used DecoArt‘s paint on a TON of projects and are so happy they’ve been extending their craft paint line into so much more. Their chalky paint is one of our go-to’s as well!
Ta-Da! Here she is all dressed up and ready for the ball!
