It’s the latest interior décor trend, and it’s so easy! Forget feature walls, paint internal doors in bold colours? Have a red vase you love? match your door to it.
What about those yellow couch cushions? Paint the door nearby the same shade! Love the fiddle leaf plant by the front door? Paint the inside of the door to match it! The best thing about this trend is if it doesn’t work, easy, just paint over it!
Here’s how to do it with Dulux Australia’s door freshen up guide.
1: Gather your painting supplies – Dulux Aquanamel® in your chosen colour(s), Dulux 1Step® Prep, drop sheet, high quality synthetic brush for cutting in, 400 grit sandpaper, painter’s tape, old cloths.
2: After sanding down the surface, wipe down thoroughly then apply one coat of Dulux 1Step® Prep.
3: Allow 2 hours to dry, then commence painting by cutting in around the edges of the door using Dulux Aquanamel®.
4: Apply Dulux Aquanamel® to the surface using short brush strokes, starting with the inner panels and working your way out.
5: Once you’ve completed an area, while the paint is still wet, lightly smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes – but, don’t overdo or reload the brush – a few brush strokes will smooth the surface.
6: Allow 2 hours to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper.
7: Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the second and final coat.
