Let me start by saying I am not a Pink girl … I live in black + grey with an accent of gold most days. I like jeans with a black shirt pretty much everyday of my life but for some reason all this crazy stuff going on in the world got me thinking about painting my door pink. I thought it would look great against the white brick see this post about that DIY project here. We recently added black shutters (here is that post) and so I thought it would be a fun way to add a little WOW to the front of the house from the street.
I used the Jolie Paint line that I carry in my retail store (you can buy it online here too). The color is called Hibiscus and it just makes me happy to look at it. I wiped down the door and just threw it on, the bests thing about Jolie paint is there is no priming or sanding that is why I use it on everything. You basically can’t go wrong with it. Learn more about Jolie Paint and our other 2 lines of DIY paint at the shop here.
I still want to paint one more coat of paint on the door and then I will use our low luster varnish to seal it. You can’t use wax because it will melt in the sun. You do not have to seal it …I just want to because it will deepen the color a little bit and I think it will be pretty. Pardon my non styled picture …. we still need to do landscaping and plants on the steps and so much more …but it’s real life not Pinterest over here these days and most days honestly.
I love watching people walk by when we are in the front of the yard and they always comment on the door. I think it makes them happy too!
