Peacock Front Door!

 Peacock Front Door!
Okay, this is our side door.  But it gets used more than our cool front door.
And it was ugly.

When we bought this house in January, the inside of the house was painted a purple-ish gray color.
They used it on this door too.  Not a fan.
Not only is it super boring...but it was scratched badly from the previous owners dogs.
The trim is a peachy salmon color and I do not love it...but until we get brave enough to paint
 all the wood surfaces of the house, I'll leave it the way it is.
In any case the Peacock is the perfect complimentary color!
 I painted it Peacock Blue!
I love all shades of blue, especially teal!
My husband is not a huge fan of this color.
I decided to paint the door while he was gone at a weekend scout camp with our son.
 I used this fantastic Peacock Blue paint from Waverly,
These products are available at Walmart.
I work with Plaid Crafts and they hooked me up for this post.
This paint is semi-gloss, so it's perfect for a door and it's easy to clean.
My door is not in direct sunlight and it is under a carport, so it is protected from the weather,
but I'd use this paint on any door anywhere because when it peels, I'd just paint it again.
 I used the largest of the Waverly Basecoating Paintbrush
It is a large paintbrush but smooth bristles for a wonderful coating.
I used painters tape to tape off my door knob and key pad.
 I didn't bother taping the trim, but I did paint it white afterwards.
 Once taped, I did all the edges and then filled it in.
It goes on smooth and dries fast.
 After one coat I let it dry for 2 hours and then did a second coat.
 Let that dry and put a new command hook on the glass and it is good to go!
I love a good Before and After!
I love this door.
My husband was surprised, he doesn't love the color but thinks the door looks better.
I told him every time he sees it he can just remember how much he loves me!


I love it!
