Painting Flat Doors

 

Flat passage doors are common inside your home, where they get lots of use and can get dirty, especially around the doorknob. The good news is they are easy to paint, even if you leave them hanging on their hinges. Spread out some newspapers under the door and you're ready to go.

 
 

You don't have to take a flat door off its hinges, but removing the doorknob and latch bolt makes the job a whole lot faster and neater. After the hardware is off, you can brush or roll the door, just be sure to catch any runs and drips. Finish the edge around the hinges with a small brush.
