Offer a warm welcome

What better way to greet visitors than with a cheery, cherry red door? Painting an entire house brightly is a gutsy move, but a slice of color on the door is a subtle gesture that still feels fresh and inviting.

Paint tip:  Use a tinted primer for dark and bright colors. It greatly improves coverage. Ask the paint retailer for a custom mix compatible with your surfaces and paint.
