**Just a heads up: this is a sponsored post. I was compensated for this review with free product. That being said, I wouldn’t say amazing things about the product if I didn’t love it, so all opinions and feelings are my own.**
The Haven conference put me in touch with about a million cool people. A MILLION. NO EXAGGERATING. Lies. All the exaggerating. There were only 300-500 people there. But they were SO amazing, it felt like A MILLION. For real this time. One of the amazing companies I met (along with Sam, the sweet boy who helped me at their booth) was Modern Masters. We took super cute pictures of ourselves and the rock they gave me in the swag bag said that I wanted to be successful. I’m taking it as a good omen…for sometime. When we were contacted by Modern Masters about doing a project, I was a really benevolent and generous wife and I let my husband choose the color of our Front Door Paint. I was really hesitant because we painted our front door with regular old yellow paint from the store and it was…not what I had envisioned. I loved it WAY MORE than the ugly builder off-white color, but it wasn’t a SHAZAM for me. Well, we narrowed it down to two, he picked the one he knew I was comfortable with, I continued to tell him it was HIS choice, and he picked the one that had been his favorite since we went to their booth, Energetic. I did veto the Texas Longhorns vinyl silhouette he wanted on the door. Here’s the before…with the face of a guy who got to choose his front door color. There are about a million great things about this paint. This time I’m not exaggerating. This color is like the best citrus-y punch in the face. Ever. The paint itself is amazing because it covers in two coats, dries quickly (to a Satin finish), and NEVER fades. I mean, obviously it hasn’t even been a month, but I have complete faith in this fact. If you’re wondering why the color is “Energetic” and not Citrus Splash or Orange Crush or some other crazy play on the word orange, it’s because Modern Masters’ 24 Front Door colors are based on the Emotional Color Wheel. (The yellow I selected was called “Happy”, so I think we were good either way.) If you’re STILL NOT SURE about how awesome this paint is, download the app (for iPhone AND Android) and INSTANTLY see how Front Door Paint can transform your door. INSTANTLY, y’all. That’s my life’s dream…instant DIY results. When I received the paint, it was definitely a SHAZAM and I. Was. Terrified. The first coat was streaky, as are are all first coats, but Chris was PUMPED. I mean, the man kept coming around the corner to stare at the door. I should’ve littered this post with pictures of his excited face. That picture was when I knew I was going to love it with the tile. You can’t really tell in this picture, but the tile has some oranges/tans in it and the door really looks way better (and obviously, warmer) with them than the yellow ever did. Here’s after coat 2…pretend you don’t see how badly spray painting my door hardware went. The paint was legit, y’all. And it *really* did cover after 2 coats, but I’m a bit paranoid and the container said *some* colors may need 3 coats. I feel better being safe than sorry, so I did a 3rd coat. I’m really happy that I did because it *really* polished it and makes it look professional. I mean, I’m super amateur-hour and this door looks GOOOOOOD. Plus, there’s TONS of paint left, like, enough to do 5 more doors. I think we might replace our siding and then make our two little sheds and our back door match! Sadly, that prospect is SO exciting to me. Please tell me I’m not alone. Don’t be jealous of how badly we need to replace our siding and trim. Tell me, whose idea was it to build a particle-board siding house in a region called the TIDEWATER. IT RAINS ALL THE TIME. It’s actually raining as I type. Ridiculous. But, here it is with our (less than favorite) storm door closed. Maybe I’ll update this picture when I actually clean the storm door. So, 2015? 2016? This is probably my favorite photo. This is what you’d see if you were standing in my front yard (with your umbrella and boots on) right now, albeit slightly gray-er. The orange plays up my favorite wooden block (the “M” – like Modern Masters!) and I love how…well, energetic it makes our entryway look. Also, it’s the PERFECT orange for fall decorating, which I might share when I’m finally finished with it. Keep scrolling for THE BEST PART.
