Have you used milk paint before? Do you know it can be used even on an inexpensive metal door? Get ready for an instant upgrade!
We bought this door on a whim. We were in the thick of remodeling and we needed something quick. I was at Home Depot and saw it in the clearance section of their parking lot sale.
It was dirt cheap and I called my husband with the measurements, he quickly Ok’ed the purchase and I brought it home. Something got lost in the communication that day and my husband didn’t realize just how narrow it was until after it was installed.
Christmas trees and couches have a pain ever since, like trying to fit a camel through the eye of a needle. Ok, not that bad, but the day was have to replace our refrigerator is probably the same day we replace our front door.
In the mean time, I have tried to make do with what we have. For years the door just had primer on it which is impossible to get clean finger prints off of.
Then, I tried my hand at faux painting wood which was really interesting and went surprisingly well. The problem was it didn’t photograph well, so in the end I opted for a navy blue milk paint.
Now, I LOVE milk paint, but this was the first time I have ever applied it to metal. I am happy to report that it behaved just like I hoped it would.
Here is a quick run down of what I did. . .
