You really can't see what I am talking about with these two photos so I will post some better photos soon. I was going to get some yesterday but I got rained out. These photos are from Monday when I started.
The first thing I do is scrub the doors down really well with soap and water to get all the dirt off. Not that they were really dirty but being outside anything is going to have a layer of dust and dirt on it.
So in the first photo you can see how I have applied the primer over the white doors and in the second photo I have applied the base coat of paint. The base coat I am using on these doors is a Sherwin Williams color called Toasty.
I should be able to get a good day in today as the forecast is much better as far as rain goes.
