As you probably have guessed, I am trying to accomplish several items on my to-do list this month for the One Room Challenge and this front door makeover is on the top of my list.
Here is my One Room Challenge Spring 2022 moodboard!
I haven’t changed or updated my front door since I built my house back in 2012. Partly because I like it the way it is and partly because I didn’t quite have an inspiration for it either. I have gone back and forth about whether it should match the shutters on the outside of the house or can it be its own color?
Also, what is the best paint for a front door makeover? My door is covered and isn’t exposed to any sunlight, but it gets pretty beat up by my family so I need the front door paint to be very durable.
I like to use Amy Howard at Home One step paint. I use it for so many projects and it is very durable but also very matte and I didn’t want to topcoat a matte paint on the front door.
Amy Howard at Home just came out with a new paint line called One Hour Miracle paint. It has a more satin finish and they say it is great for cabinets and doors. I found a color that I wanted to try and I ordered it! Let’s give it a try. I will keep you updated on how it works. I have used Modern Masters front door paint in the past and I loved it, but I want to try the One Hour Miracle paint and they had the perfect color for my inspiration!
My Inspiration for the front door
It all started when I saw this wallpaper. As I often search “dutch floral” on Google, Amazon, and Instagram, this wallpaper came upon in one of my searches.
I mean, come on?!?!? It looks like it was made for me. I couldn’t love it more! I have literally purchased this floral pattern years ago for my business logo on Creative Market, and I use it in my graphics and branding as often as possible.
I am making over my laundry room for the One Room Challenge and my foyer and small walk-through are directly connected so I am tieing them all together and making them over together.
This wallpaper doesn’t have the exact color that I have ordered for the front door but I believe it will enhance the florals in the wallpaper.
This is going directly into the laundry room in a fun way and I can’t wait to get it done!
One Hour Miracle Paint color
I guess you want to see the paint color right? LOL This is what I have landed on. It’s a color called Drama Queen. It’s pink. I will let you know how it looks on the inside of the door and then I will decide if I want to paint the outside of the door as well. As of now, I am waiting on the paint to come in and trying to talk my husband into a pink front door. What do you think? Will he say okay?
As I get pictures I will share them. Be sure to Sign up for my emails to get the first look at my reveal!
