Sorry I’ve been so MIA this week. We’ve been working super long hours in the shop lately and I’ve been feeling burnt out. Like, complete brain mush. So please pardon me if this post makes zero sense. But I had to paint my Front Door the old blue was getting super beat up. So enjoy this little front door makeover.
I’m one of those gals who lives hard with something and then gets tired it it fast. One of the joys of our job is staging our furniture & interior decorating. I think one of the biggest reasons our business is so successful is because I bring our products into our home and stage it & live with it. People like to see how a piece can be implemented into their life.
Well, on the same token I get so tired of things so fast. praise Jesus I have the job I do, or else Glen would gone insane! Last spring I painted the door light blue. I have loved the pop of color, but I’m at the point where I’m not loving the blue anymore.

Que in Fat Paint. A few months of those they sponsored my blog & sent me two large cans of paint & some wax. I thought I had used it all up, but I just found some of the grey stashed in my back craft cupboard – score!!
So today I’m going to show you how easy it is so refinish a door in your home. Easy peasy taping, rolling & wallah!
Here’s how my front door looked prior to me painting it.
Okay, so I like how you can see a sliver of the door. But I’ve already tapped my door down, and that was the only photo I cold find. You get the jist. Very vibrant & spring like. Which is pretty – but I’m tired of that pop of blue.
Que In my Skyline Chalk Paint From Fat Paint. They have a huge selection of colors.
Here’s my door all taped up. Seriously, do this. It makes your life so much easier. Last paint I took the handles off. This one I’m just tapping everything.
I’m aware the door is in BAD shape. It wasn’t a very smart idea in the first place to paint our door light blue with all the little hands around here & the nature of our business. Our hands are always covered in stain, so the door has taken a huge beating.
You want to tape all the items of the door that you don’t want paint on. Taping the window was so tedious. Love all the lovely cell phone photos? My SD Card got chewed up by a baby yesterday & I didn’t have time to grab a new one.
This is the brush I used for all around the handles and tight areas. I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s meant for trim, but it’s so easy to use.
I rolled the front door with this set. It went on super easy without leaving any globs or marks. Seriously, chalk paint went on amazing, and I only had to do two coats for amazing coverage. This photo was taken after the first coat. Also, it literally dried in under 45 minutes. So I got both coats on within two hours.
Here’s how the door looks all completed! I LOVE it. It defines the entrance now & is a bold pop.
