    Hi Beebell, I used stain on my door so I found this Consumer report on the best paint, you may find interesting!

    your local hardware store (lowes, home depot etc.) can help you pick a paint that won't fade - or any major paint brand store Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore etc. - it depends on the door (wood or metal) which way it actually faces, does it get wet in rain, do you get extreme temps etc.

    Hi! My front door also gets many hours of direct sunlight. A good exterior paint will hold up just fine! No worries.

    Ditto here. I have tried using a stain and seal paint for the last three years, and I ended up reapplying each summer. This years, I'm going to use wood spackle in the minor cracks in the wood door, then painting with a turquoise chalk paint. Then I'm going to use an exterior sealer, but not wax! This Texas sun would laugh at that. If I could, I would have an awning. The tree that used to shade the door was struck by lightning and had to be cut down. So chalk paint, it's your turn now! Best wishes 😇
