    If it is possible to remove the door, I would spray paint it. Lots of colors to choose from.

    Rustoleum or another that is made for painting on metal.
  • Love it!!!💖 Head on over to your local paint store. They have paint formulated specifically for metal as well as UV blocking protection to protect against sun damage and fading. Same prep applies, clean, prime then paint. The consultants at the paint store will be able to help you with everything you need.

    1. prep the door by doing a light sanding and removing all the hardware.
    2. Now is also the time to see if there are any dents. If so, level those out with Bondo and sand flat to match the surface of the door.
    3. Use a tack cloth to remove any sanding residue and dust.
    4. Use only quality brushes or cabinet grade foam rollers.
    5. Use a primer that also adheres to metal.
    6. Let dry.
    7. Apply any quality exterior paint of your choice. You can use latex, oil or alkyd.

    Happy painting!

  • I recommend Rustoleum for Metal, although you would have to mix the color yourself (they have white and a barn red)
