Want to give your home a fresh look? Painting can help you with this. Cover your wooden doors with a tempting color, or use color grades. Let us check the step-by-step guide to how to paint wooden doors (วิธีทาประตูไม้, which is the term in Thai).

Collect Your Materials

  • Paint (choose a type of paint and color that works for your door)
  • Primer
  • A foam roller or a paintbrush
  • (Medium and Fine Grit) sandpaper
  • To remove hardware, use a screwdriver.
  • Old sheets or a drop cloth
  • Plaster tape
  • paint tray
  • Paper towels or rags
  • for details, a little paintbrush

Get The Area Ready

Spread out an old sheet or drop cloth to protect your floor from spills and drips. Use a screwdriver to remove any hardware, including hinges, handles, and knobs. Painter’s tape can protect them if you cannot remove them from the surface.

Clean The Door

Wipe down the door with a moist cloth or sponge to get rid of filth, dust, and any cobwebs. Let it thoroughly dry before continuing.

Sand The Door

Sand your door with medium-grit sandpaper to achieve a smooth surface if it has old, peeling, or chipping paint or is made entirely of raw wood. To make it even smoother, use fine-grit sandpaper after. Use a cloth to remove the dust.

Use Primer If Necessary.

Apply a primer layer if your door has stains or dark paint, sanded down to the bare wood, or both. A consistent basis is provided by primer, which also improves paint adhesion. As directed by the manufacturer, let the primer dry fully.

Tape Off The Edges

Protect any sections you don’t want to be painted using painter’s tape, such as the edges of the door frame or the glass on a front door. For crisp lines, make sure the tape is applied precisely.

Commence Painting

Fill a paint tray with the color of paint of your choice. Start applying the paint using a foam roller or paintbrush. Start by working on the recessed or intricate sections like panels, grooves, and edges. Paint the bigger, flat surfaces next.

Use Multiple Coats

You could require two or even three coats of paint to achieve a deep, even hue. Find the recommended drying periods on the paint container.
