Nothing says glamour like a gold-painted front door (it sounds gaudy, but done right it can be surprisingly understated).

Above: One of our favorite front doors; see the whole project in today’s post A Walk on the Wild Side, Small-Space Edition.

Above: Though the name is a bit misleading, we think opaque Warm Silver is the perfect shade. It’s not too bright or too yellow, and it has a subdued shiny finish.

Above: A 32-ounce pot of Modern Masters Warm Silver Metallic Paint is $36.74 from Amazon.
