I have been wanting to paint our front door for a long time, but couldn't decide on what to do. I went back and forth, but it all came down to I wanted a new wood door!! Well that wasn't in the budget, but paint was!!! I did a little research on ehow and youtube on how to become a pro faux wood grain painter! I am a far cry from that, but here is how it turned out!
I first painted a base coat that was suppose to be a golden wood undertone and then let it dry for 24 hours.
I then got a sample jar of darker paint and mixed it with a glaze (5 parts glaze to one part paint). I applied it with a paint brush and then went over it with a rocking wood grain tool.
I was pretty impressed with how it turned out and it was far better than our old white door. it is so inviting and I just love it.
I told Justin the garage door is next!!!
