The finished door

Post by davros123 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 4:13 pm

I posted a couple of times for advice re my front door.

I was hoping to get a nice gloss finish on it. People seem to be opting for flat looking paint these days but you can't beat gloss for a door imo.

Anyway I promised some pictures on completion.

Be kind, I am a bit of a novice and my gloss skills are particularly poor but I am pretty happy with the result. I have no doubt a pro could've done twice the job in half the time but a pro I am not!

I think it's lovely - the colour sets the brass off perfectly. Well done.
Can you tell us what gloss brand/type you used? and what Primer?

Thanks. I think next time around I could improve the finish a lot. Considering the sate the door was in when I started I think it is pretty decent.

I used Johnstones Professional Undercoat and Gloss, both tinted to Farrow and Ball Studio Green by my local independent decorator's centre. Primer was Leyland Wood Primer.

You had a good go given the timber that was on the door. Well done.

Next time, paint the frame for the glass white so you have some extra work to do :-)
