How I painted my metal door and hardware

I see a green door and I want it painted black. 

Ah summer.  Time to get out that to-do list, and get to work.  I have had this project on my list for over six months, and I can proudly cross it off.  And share it with you!


This is one of the after pictures.  Let’s check out some before shots, shall we?


Brass…


More brass.  

Time for a change.  I bought some Rust-oleum Universal Metallic in Oil Rubbed Bronze. 

I have to mention my friend Beckie, from Infarrantly Creative.  She spray painted some door knobs in her home and gave us her great tutorial here.  

I did a couple of things differently for mine…I left my hardware on my door while I painted it because I knew I was painting the door black afterwards. Also, we do not use this door to enter and exit, so I knew it would have time to cure, without hands and keys all over it.

I sanded the entire handle to take the shine off, so the paint would have a good surface to stick to.


And now for the weirdest, but cleverest way I have ever used one of these little round bandages…


It was perfect for the peephole!  See how roughed up the brass finish is? Yeah I know…I’m so mean!


For the door itself, I used Valspar latex enamel (interior/exterior) in black. After sanding and cleaning the door, and three coats of paint later, I was finished!


No more brass!


Who is it?


So, what do you think? 

You know what I think…  I think it needs a cool wreath now…

Stay tuned.
