Then it hit me, there was not any real transition to the very kakhi/white sitting room, into the very blue/white family room. So the very boring door would be an excellent transition area, and bring some more color into the front room.
So I went and grabbed –
High Density Foam roller
and Paint Tray
Begin by removing the door knob. There are typically only two bolts that need to be loosed to remove the knob.
Next, you will need to lightly sand the entire door. Make sure you get in the recessed portions of your door using either a foam sanding block, or a simple piece of sand paper.
Wipe down thoroughly, then allow to dry.
Then grab your paint brush, I love 2″ angled brushed myself.
With the brush you will first paint the recessed areas, also you will “cut in” around the hinges. (I know lots of people prefer to just tape them off, but I honestly think that sometimes prep work takes longer than simply being careful.)
high density rollers you really don’t need to worry about streaks! These little guys are awesome.
After it is dried, determine if it needs another coat, if not reinstall hardware. If yes, slap on another coat!
Now stand back and admire the huge difference a coat of paint can make!
