Strut the Front Door
Brighten up your stoop with a DIY front door makeover. All it requires is a little paint and creativity!
Now You Try!
After using a damp rag to wipe the surface of your door super clean, mask the door's hardware in painter's tape. Then, apply two coats of exterior paint with primer to the outside of your door.
After the base color dries, put tape around and inside each of the panels, leaving only the trim and grooves exposed.
Paint trim in a contrasting color with an angled brush. Add a second coat, if needed.
Roll the inside and top edges of the door in a bright accent color. Once dry, remove all the tape and admire your handiwork!
No doggie door? No problem! Here's a way to show off your pup without a bark: Cut out the inside of a pet stencil and tape the outline to your door. Then, paint inside the shape in your favorite color, let dry and remove stencil. Get our adorable dog, cat, giraffe and bird templates to make your DIY even easier!
Lay painter's tape diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner and paint one side. Once dry, remove the tape, lay a new diagonal strip and paint the other side.
Here's another way to update an entry in the house. Use painter's tape to block out your design.
