I’ve always wanted a statement door and I knew when we moved this would be my first project. I talked with the hubby and got his input on living with a PINK front door. Yes a Very Berry pink door to be exact! I found my inspiration on Pinterest and was ready for the challenge.
Before we closed on our house I mentioned to our realator that I wanted to paint the door and as part of our closing gift, she gifted us with this awesome #HWTH door mat!
Initially, our door was black, and since it was already a grey exterior I wanted to spice up the outside. I went to our local Lowe’s Home Improvement store and grabbed a can of pink paint that I THOUGHT was the color of my dreams.
The first coat scared me so bad I wanted to abort the mission! But since I’m not a quitter, I decided to press on. After my second coat, I realized this was not the color for me.
I went back to Lowe’s and that’s when I found Very Berry by Valspar!
After 3 coats I was in love! They hardest or should I say most tedious part was using painters tape and painting around the glass.
I will admit, I was so scared but one I made the first stroke I was game and I’m so excited about the decision we made. Every morning when I drive off I look in the mirror and I’m excited to see that pink door as we head off on our daily routine.
Think of one item that you’ve been holding off on doing and knock it out this month!!! It’s literally SEPTEMBER and time waits for no one so I’m cheering you on now! Be sure to tag me in your pics and drop a comment below to let me know what you’re up too.
Cheers to taking risks and crushing them! Until next time…..
