Screen Door Makeover


I have a metal door with the usual long rectangle windows set into plastic. In front of that is a storm/screen door that will not be removed. It is the kind with the metal on the bottom and the cylinder attatching to doorframe. I plan on painting the concrete covered walkway from driveway...approx 15' by 3' the screen door opens onto this and totally blocks the pathway (oh well). I would like to spruce all this up as the weather is nice enough now. Thank you, nanaimomuffin.

Screen Door Makeover


So you want to clean the storm door?
Clean the door.
If that's not what you want to do, I'd clarify the post.

I'd spray it unless you want brush marks all over.
Don't understand the need for an oil based paint on metal.
