I will share the best way to paint the metal trim around your glass door and how to paint your front door too!
HOW TO PAINT A METAL STORM DOOR AND WOOD FRONT DOOR
I painted our front door red about 15 years ago. I think it was the first time I painted a door. Let me tell you....when you use red paint, it takes several coats of paint to get good coverage.
Anyway, It's time for a paint change. We are slowly upping the curb appeal of our home. We updated the house shutters and the light fixtures on each side of the door this year.
I chose Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint and primer to paint the door. When doing a job like this, I like to be extra sure and prime, prime, and prime. Behr Ultra goes on smoothly and doesn't chip off.
Before painting, I taped off the door knob with painter's tape. I removed the kick plate and the door knocker. They needed to be updated, and that's a post for a later day.
The door primed and ready for paint. I applied one coat of primer, just enough to give the top coat a good base to grip to. Now about that shiny brass hardware I painted.
