My July projects include repainting my sorry front door. Hoo boy, is it in bad shape. We’ve abused it with tape and crepe to make a Door Monster for Halloween (and it hid the chipped, faded paint!), and turned the blue-ish door into our own personal Tardis for a Doctor Who party. But, the door has taken a beating and is ready for repainting. I’ve painted the inside of my house before, but never have done any exterior work. It’s gotta be different with some important steps to follow. And should I paint it a true Tardis blue? Or a forrest green, like The Husband has requested… decisions, decisions…
You Tube to the Rescue!
This guy had great instructions, door totally off the hinges with no hardware to tape around:
So did the people at Dunn-Edwards Paints, and they left the door on the hinges and some of the hardware on:
This video was helpful, too, another with the door on the hinges and hardware taped and providing a materials list:
OK. I’m ready to hit the paint counter and get started.
