One of the easiest ways to improve your curb appeal is to paint the front door.
I found a great new product. The product description caught my attention. Durable, fast-drying, fade-resistant acrylic paint that offers superior protection without requiring a sealer. Its versatile semi-gloss finish is both scuff- and water-resistant, making it perfect for outdoor use. This water-based formula offers excellent adhesion to metal, wood, plastic, and more.
I couldn’t wait to give it a try on my front door. It was exactly as described. (I am not being compensated by DecoArt).

In 2008 we painted the door terra-cotta, which I love but I now needed two things. I felt I needed a little break from organizing cluttered spaces that no one sees and I needed a little instant gratification. Well, almost instant.
It was a beautiful morning. I washed the door to get all the dust off. After all, it is West Texas. The wind blows and the dust covers everything.
I grabbed a few tools and a cup of coffee. Kitty No had to stay in the studio because I had the door open and she is not allowed outside.
I had already started to paint when I remembered that it is easier if you loosen the doorknob and protect it with painters tape. I used masking tape that morning because I didn’t want to take the time to find it.
Remember, I talked about rewarding yourself when you finish one of “those” tasks. Painting my front door was my reward.
I followed the directions. Surprise!!! And let it dry between coats. It only took two coats to cover the terra-cotta color. The total task time was less than a hour. That doesn’t include the drying time. It does include painting both sides, because I loved the results so much that I painted the inside of the door. And, I still have half of the paint left. I am sure I will find something else to paint before the dust settles.
The fun thing about change is change!!! Now, I need to change out the sunflowers.
It’s time. But, they will have to wait.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. Isaiah 26: 3-4 ESV
’til next time,
