Queen Anne Bungalow ResurrectionVictorian Entry, Atlanta

A vintage, salvaged wood door replaced the original and was painted a bright blue to match the beadboard porch ceiling. The fresh color happily welcomes you home every day.

    Is the porch floor Azek? Treated wood?

    OH, the porch is simply yellow pine tongue and groove.

    Is it the same color as the ceiling, which just appears darker?

      Tools and MaterialsDropcloths and plastic sheetingTack cloth (to remove sanding dust)Painters tapeSponge (to clean door)Low-suds detergent or mild dish soapPutty knifeSandpaper (around 200 grit works well)Thin-nap roller (6 inches wide), good for a thin, smooth finishPaint (most projects will require about a quart)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) (If you’ve considered updating your front door hardware, this might be a good time to do it.)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.
