It creates a polished look for your exterior and -most importantly – it adds value to your home!
How does your entry way look?
It’s a great idea to walk outside your home and look at your entryway in a whole new light. Sometimes we become blind to scuff marks, peeling paint, sun fading and insect activity. In this video, I have you visually inspecting your front door for maintenance issues. I teach you how to correct problems that occur as a result of daily activity and how to prevent damage from occurring. Let’s talk about my front door; My main problem is sun fading. My front door gets hit by the sun most of the day. I also have a carpenter bee trying to carve out a new home for itself. These are easy fixes that I wrap up in no time. I share my methods with you too…
How to paint a front door without brush marks tips and tricks!
Painting a front door requires the use of only a few basic tools and the correct materials to give you professional results. My materials list is available on my website at www.reneeromeo.com and you can easily print it and bring it to the store with you (available below). I give my recommendation for the best paint to use for this project. I won’t give it away here so you’ll have to watch the full video to find out what product I like to use best. Also, proper preparation of the front door surface is imperative. I show you how to use every day supplies to get the smoothest surface possible.
When I show you how to paint your front door without brush marks, your entire entryway becomes a showstopper! Why go through all the hassle and expense of planting annual flowers, mowing the lawn and sweeping the stairs when your front door is miserable looking? Accentuate the most important part of your home with a fresh coat of paint. Did you know that the finish of the paint is responsible for keeping your front door clean too? It’s true! I tell you the proper finish to choose for your door. The finish will keep the surface cleaner and make it last longer too. It’s also responsible for resisting UV rays so that the sun won’t fade it quickly. Who knew?
People love it when DIY projects go well. I will help you get a lovely first impression with your front door. Friends and family will marvel at the quality paint job. This is a project that will last for years and years without need for re-painting. And the best part is, you can accomplish this with only ONE coat of paint – just like I did. The quality of the paint is responsible for one coat coverage and allows for a less time-consuming paint project. You can do this too with my advice and know-how. Aren’t you dying to try?
Don’t make a mistake by not taking my advice!
Let my years of painting experience work for you. I share the correct technique for dealing with peeling paint – it’s easy if you know how. A clean surface is a must too. Paint doesn’t adhere to dirt, mildew or unstable paint and I have all the solutions! Worst yet, dealing with the outdoor environment presents its own set of problems during the painting process. I have a clever way of dealing with bugs, insects and critters during drying time. Don’t let any of these creatures ruin your beautiful paint job – I sure didn’t!
It doesn’t matter whether you have a fiberglass door (like I do), a metal door or a wood door. You can perform this task on any surface and get the same beautiful results I do, time after time. My front doors are never ignored. I’ve owned eleven front doors into my life and I always have a great looking front door. Why? Two reasons: because I have pride in my home’s appearance and curb appeal is important for resale value. I never know when I’ll be selling so I keep my front door in good repair, just in case.
This project is finished in just a few short hours. Yes, I performed my paint job over the course of three days because I prefer to do a little bit of work each day. If you just have one door to paint, your whole task can be finished easily in just a day! You don’t have to hire this out and you don’t have to rent expensive paint equipment to get a professional finish. A good quality paint brush, the right paint and the correct technique is all it takes to paint an entry door without brush marks. The best part is, you don’t need to purchase separate primer either. It’s all in one single can of paint!
I also believe that pride in DIY projects (such as this) goes a long way to inspire you to do even more DIY projects. Once you see how easy it is to get perfect results, you can tackle larger painting projects without fear of failure. Please let me guide you through this entire project and then you can move your expertise gained to the inside of your home. You can even paint an entire room without fear. If you need to paint your cabinets, you can do that without brush marks too! Let me show you how to beautify your home with paint and give you the professional results you desire…
