Pink Painted Door Makeover (The Easy Way!)

This spring, I decided to tackle something that's been on my to-do list for a long time- repainting my front door! It's been a boring shade of brick red since we bought the house over 3 years ago and I was ready to give it the facelift it deserved. There was one major thing stopping me though- how do I remove all this hardware to paint it? I wanted to paint the door without all the hard work, so I decided to partner up with FrogTape to give this door a much-needed makeover.

Before we begin, let's take a look at my door before the makeover. It seems like it had been painted around the hardware, but BADLY. All the strokes were in random directions. We actually replaced the door hardware when we bought the house, but the previous ones were covered in paint along the edges. It wasn't a neat job, and the door had a sheer hue to it- you could see every paint stroke and even the white door underneath. It looked like it only got one sad, lonely coat of paint.

Prepping To Paint Your Door

Ok, before you begin painting your door you'll want to prep it. I started by giving it a gentle sanding to get all the dirt and debris off of it. Even with a storm door over it, a lot of stuff got stuck to the door!

Once it was cleaned and sanded, I taped off all my edges with FrogTape. It's the only tape with PaintBlock® Technology, which ensures no paint seeps through. The result is sharp paint lines and a professional-looking paint job. Plus, it removes cleanly from most surfaces for up to 21 days!

I used the FrogTape to cover all my hardware, plus I made a border to protect the white window. It was really easy to use! Within a few minutes, I was ready to get my paint on. All of this was done under the supervision of my trusty helper, Lexie. I’m not sure how she didn’t get any paint on her, but I guess she’s a real pro.

Painting Your Door

Now that your door is all taped up with FrogTape, it's time to start painting! I began by outlining the panels with paint using a small angled brush. I also used this brush along the edges near the window and hardware to ensure everything got a nice even coat of paint.

After everything was outlined, I used my roller to cover the rest of the surface area in this really fun pink paint! My poor husband said he didn’t care what color I picked, as long as it wasn’t pink. Well…. sorry honey! I promise, I meant to do it a brighter shade of red, but this color (Hint of Cherry by Valspar) stopped me in my tracks and I had to do it. It was calling to me! And, while I was at the paint counter doubting my choice, there was another person there that picked the EXACT SAME COLOR so I think it was fate. A pink door was meant to be.

While I wasn’t sure exactly how my husband would react to this color, I knew using FrogTape was the right decision. I could paint with confidence, because I knew FrogTape's PaintBlock® Technology would ensure no paint would seep under the tape and ruin my hardware.

I slathered on the first coat of paint and started to get excited. In between coats, I put my supplies in a large trash bag with a little bit of water to prevent it from drying it. This meant that I didn’t have to wash them between coats, which was a HUGE timesaver!

Once everything was fully painted, I pulled off the tape for the grand reveal! I have to admit I was a little but nervous, but FragTape did an AMAZING job. All the edges were crisp and beautiful.

It took about 3 coats of paint, but my door is now fresh and ready to go! Every time I look at it, I get so happy. It's the only pink door on the block, and possibly even in the neighborhood! I've gotta give a huge shout-out to FrogTape for helping me get this project off my to do list. It felt amazing, and looks even better! If you’re looking to give your front door a new look, head over to your local hardware store and grab yourself a roll of FrogTape and a quart of paint.

TGIF 90's Themed Slumber Party

Thank God it's Friday, amirite guys?! Fridays have always been one of my favorite days of the week, but I think they were better back in the 90's. You know, back when you were in school and Fridays meant you didn't have to come home and immediately do homework so you felt like a real kid? And what was the best part of Fridays? Watching TGIF and having sleepovers! I remember disliking any Friday evening plans that interfered with watching my favorite shows on TGIF. Didn't these people understand that I had to know if Sabrina discovered the Spellman Family Secret?!

To recreate some of the magic (hah, see what I did there?) I decided to throw a 90's TGIF themed slumber party. This party is chock-full of the fun stuff you were obsessed with as a 90's tween, therefore generating the maximum amount of nostalgia.

Sleepovers are more fun with friends, but if you want to do it alone and binge watch Boy Meets World while eating Cosmic brownies and guzzling kool-aid, I won't judge you. I'll probably be doing the same thing!

Since sleepovers mean staying awake until the sun comes up, you have to make some sleep masks to be able to get some beauty rest. They're super easy to do with this tutorial by Aww, Sam.

Another thing we loved to do at slumber parties was talk about boys. Since we were way too shy to actually talk to the boys we liked, MASH was extremely helpful in discovering which one was destined to become our husband. There was nothing better than laughing with friends as we predicted the future together- even if it meant that we would live in a shack with that guy in class that picked his nose.

I loved taking quizzes to find out which tv character I was most like. I was also intrigued by these cootie catcher fortune things, so I combined them into one SUPER handy apparatus. Because how can you consider your slumber party a success unless you know if you are more like Feeny or Topanga?

Every slumber party needs a goodie bag! How amazing are these pouches from Target's dollar section?! They're so very 90's. What goes in these beauty pouches? Bonne Belle chapstick, roll-on glitter, a mani-pedi kit, stationary, and ring pops, duh.
