After each coat has dried, lightly sand the entire door with fine grit sandpaper and wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust. This will provide the smoothest possible base for the next coat, and help you achieve a professional-looking finish. Leave ample time for the door to dry before use. It would be a great shame, after all your hard work, if paint stuck to the frame because it hadn’t fully dried.
Before you start, gently flick and pull the bristles to dislodge any loose ones, then rinse the brush in clean water. This will not only get rid of dust, but also help prevent paint from drying on the bristles. Avoid using a new brush for the first time on the top coat – always ’break it in’ on an undercoat. If you would rather not have brush marks on your door, try a high density foam mini roller. This lets you cover panels quite quickly, and will produce a smoother finish than a brush. You can turn the roller on its end to get into corners and tight spaces.
For a selection of knockers to fit any decor, many informative sources are available. Choose a style you like, including Round, lever style, or a personalized design. Many different finishes are available. They include brass, chrome, stainless steel and other miscellaneous finishes. It is important that a good quality item is selected for exterior use. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Interior doors are not as important when choosing quality, but interior and exterior doors and hardware will last longer if selected with quality in mind.When selecting new hardware, be sure to coordinate by color, materials and style. This includes the lock, hinges, door knocker and coach lights if present.
