Fixing up my house, and making it "mine" is one of my very favorite things to do. Back in August I decided to paint my pantry door and add a decal like some of the ones I've seen on Pinterest. My best friend recently bought a house, and then did something similar, but to her front door! I guess you can see why we're besties!
At first I painted the trim red too. The hubby was not happy. So I went to the store and got some white paint to redo it. It ended up being a blessing in disguise because then I went on to paint our double doors to the deck. Now they look brand new! :)
The decal was from a downtown crafty/decor store, but I'm sure they are available all over etsy. :)
I used chalk paint, so you can see the brush strokes. I think it gives it a rustic look, or makes it kind of antique looking. If you don't like it, more coats of paint will eradicate the look. :) I added a wax to the door, and so far (in 2 months) I haven't noticed any chipping at all.
The paint I used was the Urban Rooster's Chalky Paint in Barn Red. Available HERE
Behind Door Number 2!
Here's my best friend's door in a gorgeous navy blue. She also added a matching house number. The cute "hello" decal is the perfect finishing touch.
She used Valspar Reserve in "Motor City Blue," with a two inch microfiber roller brush.
