See my red front door make-over

Why have an ordinary coloured door when you can have a red front door? Whilst the colour red is often associated with danger, the colour red on a front door is an inviting one. One that people find interesting to look at and makes them inquisitive to see what the house behind the door looks like. It is such a pretty phenomena that there is even a perfume named after it.

I recently paired up with TrenDIY on some DIY articles on their website. One of them was this red front door make-over of the flatlet at the back of our property. This is a project that I have wanted to do for quite some time, so when the opportunity presented I could not resist.

I added cute brass numbers from Orejen, a store in Linden with the most exquisite products that include door handles, bathroom accessories and more. Including these difficult to find door numbers.

Whilst the hues of red might vary we have decided to make use of a Plascon water based enamel, the Passion Red (101) colour. Interesting to note was that the paint mix was pink, even when painted the colour is pink initially and turns red when it dries. Other popular colour choices for doors are the traditional white or even more contemporary black.
