  • Painting a door is pretty easy. You need a brush and a foam roller. Paint the inset parts first with a brush, then the flat parts with a roller. I have a handy diagram showing you the order on my blog:

    Do NOT paint the hinges or knobs... it'll look like an amateur job.

    Make sure you clean it first. Then pick out a semi-gloss paint color. Check the back of the can to see what type of roller/paintbrush it recommends. Start with the groves of the door (if yours have them) and work your way out. Just take your time!
