  4. Found you through Pinterest! I just finished painting our front door, and have been contemplating whether or not I want to paint our shutters or just buy new ones. They are hunter green and I want them brick red, like the color I just painted our door. So, I'm sure it's just silly to prime them and paint them, huh? 😉

    • If you have leftover paint from your front door I definitely say give it a try painting them first! If you're just going to buy new ones anyway what can it hurt?

      Have you checked out your local stores to make sure they have the color you are wanting? It seemed like our options were pretty scarce, so you may want to paint them to get the exact shade to match your door anyway.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  5. Ok so like I said I am getting all sorts of caught up on your blog. I want to paint our front door. How did you do it? Did you take it off, tape it off, how did you clean it? Did you use a roller or brush?!!

    • It was so stinking easy.

      I just opened the door{So choose a pretty day to do it!}, only taped around the glass, and I used a regular paint brush.

      Jim hosed it down for me really well before I painted and I made sure to wipe it down and let it dry completely first.

      I did two coats, so it took me two afternoon naptimes to do it. I just left the door cracked until it dried and then it was ready to go! Super fast and easy.
