So my advice to anyone with a white/boring/dull front door–why not paint it? If you are going to use high gloss paint, leave 90 minutes in between coats at least. If you are itching for a red front door (how could you not?) plan on lots of coats–but also count on a big pay off.
Speaking of pay, this whole project definitely cost more than we anticipated because we bought a new front door, but here’s the rundown just in case you are planning on tackling your own door soon:
Front door: $197
1 quart of high gloss exterior Behr paint in Bijou Red: $12
4 new house numbers: $5.99 each
(these first three items I had a 10% off coupon for–score!)
New doormat: $6.97
Grand total: $200.47 (plus tax)
…and worth every penny in my opinion. What do YOU think?
