My New Peaceful Front Door Using Modern Masters

**disclosure:  I was compensated for this post with product.  However, I would never recommend a product I don't love or wouldn't use myself.  -Melody



I'm always excited about sharing new projects with you, but this time I'm ecstatic!  Why you ask??  Let me tell ya!  I've been painting as far back as I can remember (I'm only 21 so really it's not that long...wink, wink!) and I've used lots of products.  Some I like, some not so much and some I LOVE.  I have my favorite furniture paint, wall paint, but I never had a favorite front door paint....why would I?  I always thought front doors are painted with the same type of paint you put on walls, except for outside, no?  Well, I learned that not all paints for your front door are the same!  This week I painted my door using Modern Masters Front Door Paint and WOW....for real I'm in paint love!  Is that even a thing?!

One thing that really sold me on this paint was the fact is NEVER-FADES, as you can see here on the label. That means I won't have to worry about painting my door again anytime soon. 


Being a good blogger, I took lots of before pictures of my brown front door.  Now I have to point out that I didn't paint the front door brown, but the builder did.  Not my color choice, but hey it's a neutral....who am I kidding...it was boring.   Today when I went to write my post, I pulled up all the pictures and my before pics were gone!   I've been searching for the last two hours for them and they're nowhere to be found.  Luckily,  I do have a small picture I took with my iPhone that shows beautiful brown color.

Here's our brown front door.  I know you're jealous!  



Before I get started, I want to quickly talk about how I chose my door color.  First, I have a brick and taupe house.  I looked for colors that would compliment the red toned brick.  Modern Masters has a free app you can download on your smart phone or tablet that makes choosing a color easy as pie!  All you do is take a picture of your door then try each color and see which one you like the best.    How easy is that?!  Their color palette is based on an emotional color wheel.  Each color has an emotional name like Happy or Passionate.  I'm loving navy blue right now, so I chose Peaceful which is a nice deep navy.  There were a lot of choices and it wasn't an easy decision, but choosing the color was the hardest part....really!!

Once I determined the color,  my paint arrived in the mail and I prepped my door for painting.  This was an easy process because my door was in good shape,  it didn't have glossy paint finish and I wasn't going with a lighter color than my current door color (no need to prime).  To prep the door for painting, I washed it with some mild soap and water, then rinsed and let it dry. Once my door was dry, I got started. 

I will be honest, I thought this was going to be a big chore that took hours and hours, but I was so very wrong.  I started painting and 20 minutes later the door was done.  I'm not kidding!  The paint dries in about an hour to the touch.  Two hours after the first application you can apply the second coat.  I really wasn't sure I needed a second coat because it was covering so well, but in the directions it suggested a second coat to bring out the true depth of the color. 

This is how the door looked after one coat.  I thought I could stop there, it looked great, but I followed the directions instead.  Plus, at this point I had only used about 1/8 of the container of paint!  


As I waited for the front of my door to dry I thought, "Hmmm I have my new navy blue painted  ceiling in the dining room, which is right by to the front door, why not paint the inside of the door navy too?"  Of course I had to jump right on that and got painting.

Here's the inside of the door after the first coat.  The first coat went on great, but because the door was white, it needed a couple more coats.  Sorry, bad iPhone pic!


Here's the inside of the door drying after two coats of Front Door Paint!  It was probably fine with 2 coats, but again I hadn't even used half the paint in the container so I added a third coat for good measure!


All in the painting of my front door took 3 hours.  About 45 minutes to paint, inside and out and the rest was drying time.  Easiest front door project ever!!  This paint didn't smell either....no weird toxic smell hanging around the house for days.  I can't say enough great things about this paint.

Here's the front door all dried and ready for some pics.


I can never leave well enough alone...I wanted to add a little bit of whimsy and surprise to the front door, so I bought a Welcome stencil at the store and used some yellow patio paint to give it some pop!  I love it!





I added an old Chianti crate I had sitting in the basement, some white ceramic lanterns from Target, a fern in a painted galvanized bucket, a new door mat and a bright yellow mum and I had a beautiful front entry.  I've always been a fan of navy, white and yellow and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!





Here's my easy update for a worn out door handle....give it a quick spray of oil rubbed bronze spray paint! 


Pssst....I have a little confession to make...that door isn't really the first thing you see when you come up to the house.  It is technically our front door, but we have a large courtyard with an outdoor fireplace at the front of the house.  There's a gate you need to go through to get to the front door.  It was a very boring shade of taupe, until I hit it with some of my Front Door paint!  

The hubby came home from work and I showed him the finished front door.  He loved it and said, "Why don't you paint the front gate?"  I had thought the same thing, but I figured he'd think I was crazy.  Before he could change his mind, I went out and painted the front gate!  It took two coats and in no time at all I was done.  

Here's the front gate....


I LOVE how the blue pops against the red brick and the taupe trim of the entry way roof.



I have absolutely NO complaints about this product.  Not one!  If I had one, I'd honestly share it with you.  I don't believe in endorsing a product if I don't love it myself.  I have a huge crush on this paint.  One amazing thing...that container you saw in the beginning of the post?  It painted everything you see here....the entire front door and the entire gate, front and backs of both.  This was an easy, yet powerful 3 hour makeover on the front of our home.  Now I'm wishing I had more doors to paint!!  

Now that the weather is getting a bit chillier, well in some parts of the country, it's a perfect time to paint your front door.  If you have a spare 3 hours and want to make a dramatic impact to your curb appeal, this is the product for you!  


Have you used the Modern Masters Front Door Paint?  Are you planning any big outdoor projects before winter arrives?  I'd love to hear all about your projects!  I love your comments and emails so keep them coming.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

  1. Hi,

    The door looks great! Do you have a metal door, fiberglass or wood door? Did you prime the door before you painted. If so what brand/type?

    Did you use a foam roller to paint the vertical and horizontal sections and a brush for the panels or brush for the entire door? If you used a brush, what size?

  2. The mobile app sounds interesting. I am thinking of downloading it, just because it might come in handy someday. Anyways, it’s a good thing you found that paint for front doors, so that it won’t fade out as time goes by. I am loving how the color turned out, and the welcome stencil reminds me of Walt Disney’s font. I must say, the colors blue and gold really make a great pair. Thank you for giving us an honest feedback of the product!
