Tools and materialsDrop cloths and plastic sheetingCloth (to remove sanding dust)Painter’s tapeSponge (to clean door)Low-suds detergent or mild dish soapPutty knifeSandpaper (around 200 grit works well)Thin-nap roller (15 centimetres wide), good for a thin, smooth finishPaint (most projects will require about a litre)Primer (You want a primer that can be rolled on. Check with the paint store on the right type to buy, depending on the paint you choose.)Screwdrivers (if you’re going to remove the door or hardware to paint)Can you paint the front door without removing it? You don’t have to remove the front door to paint it, although removing the door and the hardware can more easily ensure even paint coverage. If it’s easier for you to leave the door up to paint it, you can still get great results. If you do choose to paint the door without removing it, do so on a day when you can leave the door open for several hours or more.

4. Paint a potHave you recently discovered the perfect front door colour? Then continue this loving feeling by using the sample paint to jazz up neighbouring flower pots. If the sample pot won’t cover an entire vessel, experiment with asymmetrical designs that will still make an impact.

Pink Door with matching color in plant pot

Colorful containers match the charming pink front door of this home in Australia. Neutral trim and siding balance out the look, making for an entry that isn’t too fussy or over-the-top. Note: love the matching flower pot
