I was redecorating around the house and I decided to give the front door a little face lift with this super easy DIY project. If you are anything like me, you love monogramming everything so why not apply that to the front door of the house as well.
First I went to Michael’s Craft Store to pick up an unfinished Monogram Wreath Letter which was only $6.99!
Then I went into the basement and found the shutter paint, I figured it was outdoor paint that was higher duty than if I just picked up a craft paint. The paint is Sherman Williams Resilience Exterior Acrylic Latex Paint. Not to mention that it matches the house perfectly!
I stared with the back of the letter and painted the face as well as all of the insides. I think that painting the insides is important so that the wood is sealed and completely coated. This should help with the weathering of the monogram letter, it is outdoor paint so it should hold up pretty nicely.
Then once all of the back is painted with one coat I let it dry overnight, then in the morning I painted a second coat of paint on it which I thought was important so that there were no visible brush strokes. then I propped it up on a can to dry for the rest of the day. That night I flipped the letter over and did the same thing for the front. As you can tell this project takes a few days to complete because its hard to work with when the paint is all wet!
Then I put a small gold ribbon on the top of the letter and used a gold over the door wreath holder and its done! You can tie the ribbon however you want but I thought that it looked pretty good in a little bow! Doesn’t it look so great up on the door! I love how it came out and it was so inexpensive.
