"Front Door Paint" for the Back Door

I'm back.....
To say I’m excited about this blog post would be an understatement.  I couldn’t wait to share my latest diy project with you guys. 
A few months ago I was contacted by Modern Masters, Inc. about doing a product review of one of their new products called, Front Door Paint.  I immediately dismissed it knowing the major issues I had previously with my “Front Door Paint” and the Homeowner’s Association (read about that HERE).  However, a few weeks later, it dawned on me that my back door might actually be a good candidate for their product.  Go figure. 
I have a detached garage that had a door that needed a little oomph,  perhaps it was the perfect solution.  I reached out to them and they agreed and sent over a full size sample of their product in the color of my choice.  The product actually comes in 24 glorious colors that correspond to various emotions.  I love that part.  I chose “Cheerful”.  There's even a free app (for both iPhone and Android) to help you choose.  I'll tell you a little more about that in my next post.     
Pretty fitting for me I suppose. It really is a cheerful color.  I chose it because this door is the door you see from my kitchen and my drapery is almost an identical match to “Cheerful”. 
What I loved about the paint is that I could immediately see the true color.
Sometimes typical paint goes on in such a manner that it takes several coats to get to the color you’re looking to achieve.  With Modern Master's paint, it seemed that with every single stroke of the brush, the intensity of the color was present.  It motivated me to keep going. 
After just one coat....

It also didn’t hurt that I only needed two coats for full coverage. This was the easiest paint project I’ve done in a long time.  That’s saying quite a bit given the fact that this is the third door I’ve painted this year.     
The best part is the paint is water based so it dries quickly and NEVER fades.  Yep, NEVER fades.  I know!  That's what I said! 
I cannot tell you how much I love this door.  I can see it from my front door, when I'm in the living room, bedroom and when I'm in my kitchen and it makes me happy (I mean cheerful) every time I catch a glimpse of it. 
Thanks to a birthday party guest and a Target gift card, I decided to pick up this Threshold key mat.  I mean, if you're going to paint a door it warrants a new mat. Right?

Such a great color and a great finish. 
I put my handygirl skills to work and switched out the lighting too.  Go me! Go me!
BIG difference (let me know what you think)!  For those of you in the Charlotte market, our Lowe's are now Front Door Paint retailers. 

  • Lowe's of S. Charlotte, NC
  • Lowe's of S.E. Charlotte, NC
  • Lowe's of Huntersville, NC

  • If you're not in Charlotte, you can check for locations near you HERE.  Thankfully it's available online too!
    So, there's even better news.  Modern Masters has agreed to give away a quart of their awesome Front Door Paint to one of my lucky readers. Check back later this week to enter.  Until then....

    Love it! Such a transformation. I really love how you can see it from your kitchen and it matches well with your interior decor. Guaranteed noone else has a door like it, and the HOA can't get upset either.

    It's better if you replace your old drafty windows with new quality windows which will save you money on your utilities GoodWindowWorks However, as time has gone by and consumers and window manufacturers have learned more, window replacement has become more common as people have gotten a better understanding of how having the right panes of glass for a space can make a difference.
