To paint a flat door, follow these instructions:

  1. Unpack the door. If you decide to paint the door without disassembling it, first rub the hinges with a cloth soaked in alcohol, then apply two coats of rubber glue (you can remove the adhesive after the work). Remove the handles, locks, and any hardware.
  2. Prepare the support. Degrease and clean. Use a medium grit sponge to sand the surface and dust off. You want to get as smooth and even a surface as possible, cleaned from the old paint.
  3. Start by painting the inner side edge with a narrow brush.
  4. Apply two or three coats of paint with vertical rolls on the entire surface of the door. Smooth the paint by rolling it one last time from bottom to top. Let dry.

To paint a panel door:

  1. Disassemble any hardware store. Sand the surface of the door. Use a sanding block that will allow you to work more easily the edges and corners of the panels. Once the surface is smooth, dust off and clean with a slightly damp sponge.
  2. Start by applying paint to the moldings of the top panels with a paintbrush. Then paint the panels themselves using the roller before going to the panels from below.
  3. Paint the center part from the bottom of each center pillar. Working from top to bottom, apply paint on the crosspieces (horizontal sections). Finally, paint the outside amounts.
  4. Allow to dry and lightly sand the painted surface before applying the second coat of paint. When the paint is already dry, attach the hardware and mount the door.

Materials needed:

  • primer
  • semi-gloss paint of two different colors (Behr, rainwater color P450-3 and Japanime P340-5)
  • 3 rolls of paint
  • paint tray
  • flat brush
  • masking tape
  • meter and pencil

Instructions :

  1. Apply a coat of primer over the entire surface of the door.
  2. Divide the door into two parts. Determine the center point using the meter and mark a line in pencil. If you want to separate the door into two equal parts, draw the diagonal through the center point.
  3. Paint one of the parts starting at the corners and edges (in case of a panel door). Use a sponge brush for these details, then paint the rest with a roller. Let dry, then apply a second coat of paint, if necessary.
  4. To mark the line of separation, lay the strip of paint following the line drawn in pencil. Smooth the ribbon with your finger so that it adheres well.
  5. Repeat step 3 for the other part of the door.
  6. Remove the masking tape once the paint is dry and then assemble the door.
