Painting Doors

Finally I am getting around to painting my doors. I have been totally procrastinating. When I started preping them I realized how far behind I was. The old wood doors really needed painting. I started by taking off the screen door. I kept it and am going to use it as a sliding barn door for our wine room, (still working on that).

Then I cleaned, sanded and primed the door.

Yay!! You might wonder why I painted it to match the house. Well, it is an old wood door, and there 2 that go outside, and they don't match, and the porch is huge, and they both kind of sag, and, and, and, I really just wanted the doors to receed into the woodwork so to speak.

I also had the paint, so that was a major win, no money needed. It does kind of hide the sagginess.

Porch showing both doors. (Painting the other one today). Will post pics.

Lots of taping. But I know it will look good.

I am trying to do at least 3 projects a week around the house. We are sooooooo far behind.

House maintenance. What are you working on?

  1. I think that the doors painted to look like the rest of the house just make your porch look THAT much bigger! As if you needed a bigger porch!
