Anyway, with the new paint colours chosen for the cottage, the window, doors and feature trims will be white and the cream security door just doesn't cut it!
I was thinking what I might do with it - remove and replace was what came to mind. Until I mentioned this to dear Dad, who suggested I remove the old mesh and spray paint the door white.
Now why on earth didn't I think of that?? Great idea Dad!
So this is the diy project I did last weekend.
I had to get moving on this before the painter started because I wanted it ready to re-hung when all the painting was done.
I got out my drill and took the door down and carried it out the back to get started.
I first gave it a hose down and a good clean with an old towel. Nothing special here, just wiped every nook and cranny on both sides. This took a little while and it didn't help things when Charlie decided he needed to sit on my lap.
Once it was all clean and dry I taped (don't you just love that I have purple tape!) up the handle and hinges then I got out the spray can and had some fun.
This is what I used. The women at Bunnings said I should only need 1 can but I grabbed a second, just incase (glad I did).
I've given both sides a coat of paint and popped it out of the way in the garage while the painter is still working on the house. I did keep a bit left in the can just incase there is a need for any touchups.
I think it's looking good.
What do you think?
