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.
On the other hand, doors are heavy, difficult to manoeuvre and take up a lot of space. The trestles might leave contact marks behind; and you will have to wait several hours for the first side to dry before you can paint the second one. In practice, most home owners prefer to decorate the door in the frame. Wait for a warm day (at least 10°C) with no wind, to avoid dust being blown on to the wet paint. Don’t work in strong sunlight as the paint may blister. Wedge the door open before you start, and place some cardboard underneath to catch drips.
