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