Painting your door doesn’t have to be a difficult task. With the right choice of paint and a little effort, you can have your door looking like new. Your door is often one of the first things people notice, so it’s a worthwhile investment—especially if you are looking to put the house up for sale.
Choosing Your Colour
The first thing is to choose your colour. In doing so, let the colours of your house be your guide. The colour of exterior door should match the painting of the house. Also, what impression do you want to give with your colour? Do you want to go for a bold look or do you want to keep it casual?
Preparing to Paint
Remove the hardware from the door (door knobs, hooks, hinges and anything else that can’t be painted). Also, cover any glass that is part of the door. Then, give the door a good wipe-down. You will need sandpaper, rollers, primer, newspaper (for the floors) and paint. Sand the door to smooth the surface.
