Distressed Front Door

This was super quick project! It really only takes like 30 minutes to paint your front door so why not change it up every once in a while? I decided one afternoon I wanted to paint my front door, grabbed some paint I had laying around and got started. I had previously painted the door black with chalk paint and covered it in a wax coating but with the color being so dark you could see every little finger print.

I mixed some paint together to get the right color I wanted and painted the door in just a few minutes. I decided I wanted a distressed look and brushed over the edges and entire door with a black wiping stain with a paint brush to give it a distressed look.  I recommend not using your favorite brush for the wiping stain because it will be toast after. This took a bit longer to dry and you want it to be completely dry before you add the wax sealant.

Once dry, I brushed on the wax, wiped it away (per can instructions) and done! In just a little bit of time you can change the look of your  front porch by changing up your door. Now to direct my attention to the dead mums still in planters outside the door. Eeek!
