    How to paint a front door, without removing it!

    How to paint your front door without removing it

    Tip: Leave your front door open to let the paint dry so make sure you pick a warm spring day with no rain forecast.

    Step 1. Remove the door hardware

    Unscrew all the fixtures on your door including the number and letterbox. It’s much easier to remove these completely than have to paint around them. Whatever you don’t remove cover with masking tape or decorator’s tape to protect it from paint.

    If you have glass panels, use decorator’s tape to stick newspaper over the top so you don’t accidentally get paint on them.

    Tip: tape the screws and fixtures together this will help you in the long run so your spending ages finding the right pairs when you have to reattach them.
