Painting a new hardwood door is much the same as the restoration of a period door, as it takes the same steps to bring a new door up to the same standard.
As shown in the photos, the steps to paint a hardwood front door are:
1. First sand the door
2. Then prime fill and sand, prime again, fill, sand and apply the undercoat
3. Then you are ready for the last two or three top coats
In this case, we used metallic paint, which is perhaps the most difficult painting job to finish without flaws as you cannot overpaint any section which already has paint on it. It’s challenging to say the least – with metallic paints this is not painting, it is an art form!
