Hi, we're Jake & Sarah

My front door has looked like this since we moved in – it’s just been primed. It needs some paint! This will be a simple makeover with a huge impact. I want to add some depth with the color – there’s too much white right now.

I used the color “Shadow Taupe” by Behr.

I’m using cabinet, door, and trim enamel paint in satin with a quarter inch nap roller. I put the first coat on and let it dry over night. I used 400 grit sandpaper before starting my second coat just to knock down any uneven spots on the paint. I painted 3 coats total.

The finishing touch was our new Eufy Security Camera. It’s 4k and there’s no monthly fee! Also, it’s solar powered…that’s cool. Even if it doesn’t have direct sunlight, you can charge with with a USB-C portal and that charge lasts 365 days. I see so many ads for security systems that are pretty expensive on a monthly basis. With this system, you buy it and that’s it. There’s no monthly fee. Your data doesn’t go out to anyone else either. We put it right in the corner by our front door!
