I’m not going to talk bad about these louvered bi-fold doors, since there are lots still in use. It’s not that they are ugly but good grief they are a pain to clean and didn’t fit my new farmhouse inspired Prayer/Workout room.

    My bi-fold doors are metal. Do you think it would work on those?

  • What did you distress them with and did you seal the doors with anything when the painting and distressing were complete?

      Everyone uses wax matte wax and gloss but it has to be reapplied every so often so wouldn’t matte clear coat be the best choice?

    Could you just buy a sheet of luber to fit the whole sides of the doors then paint them the color of your choice ???.
