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.

Painting tips & tricks of the day


When painting with dramatically different colors, apply the lighter color first and the darker color last.


Brushes and rollers can last through many projects if properly cared for. Clean them thoroughly. Wrap and store brushes in a paper towel to help them maintain their cutting edge.


For overnight breaks, you can wrap your brushes and rollers in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer. Tightly seal cans and clean trays.
