HOW TO A PAINT DOOR


1. Remove the door by driving out the lower hinge pin, using a screwdriver and hammer. Next, have a helper hold the door in place while you drive out the middle and then the upper hinge pins.

 

2. Place the door flat on a pair of sawhorses. On paneled doors, use a paintbrush to paint in the following order: 1) recessed panels, 2) horizontal rails, and 3) vertical stiles. Let the paint dry thoroughly

If a second coat is required, sand the door lightly and wipe it with a tack cloth before applying it.

 

3. Seal the unpainted edges of the door with clear wood sealer. Allow the sealer and paint to completely dry. Rehang the door in the same location, using the old screw locations as well.

 

Tip

If the screw holes in the wall no longer support the screws firmly, fill them with latex wood patch and drill pilot holes before hanging the door.
