    Smooth out the surface, apply primer then paint.

  • Re: how to color door

    Don't paint or stain the door in direct sunlight.

    Make sure you have the proper ventilation if done indoors.

    Use either a high quality brush, roller sleeve, or sprayer.

    If using paint mix well.

    Stain / varnish, read the direction.

    I don't know the exact steps you should follow, but you must apply a primer before applying the paint.

    Sand the wood properly, apply primer, then paint. You can consider polishing if you like as it brings out the beauty of the wood and gives it a shiny look.

    The door is the opening to your house and you want people to feel welcomed and comfortable when they arrive on your doorstep. Use shoothing colors, it is often best to avoid truly vibrant colors like bold oranges or magenta.

    Painting an exterior door is a 1 day project. It is an easy way to freshen up your home looks. While painting your door, there are many steps involved such as:

    1. Choosing the type of paint for your exterior door like those of acrylic latex paint.

    2. Deciding on a color of paint for your door.

    3. Using a primer will give the new paint something to adhere to.

    4. Remove the door from the hinges and removing any hardware from the door.

    5. Sand the door to prepare it for painting.

    6. Stir the paint in the can with a paint stick to thoroughly mix the paint.

    7. Paint the edges of the door first and then to the entire part.

    8. Replace hardware when the paint is dry and rehang the door on its hinges.
