Always takes longer than you think! Removing hardware, don't forget ...don't close door. Door open for long periods of time. Washing and rinsing with TSP, dry. Taping. Priming with oil...necessitates turps clean up...yuck, dry. Base coat with Benjamin Moore "Philadelphia Cream"...not sexy, but matches siding and trim. Dry. Replace hardware for overnight. Day 2. Remove hardware. Second coat, same as the first. Dry. Replace hardware. Dry. Close door. Goodnight moon!
Very pleased at long last. Door has been original primer white for far too long. It takes a team! Everything has to go away now. Not as quick as you might think :) Love it.
