How To Paint A Panel Door

From I Build It Home on Thursday, February 1st, 2018 in Arts & Culture & Videos

This is the method I use and recommend for painting panel doors. Basically the key point is to try to always follow the grain direction of the wood, even if the grain is stamped into masonite. And do areas in a logical order: trim, panels, rails, stiles, edges, top and bottom. Once you've started painting an area, move quickly to finish it to avoid smears and lap marks where the paint partially dried.

Thanks for the tips.

I have also added a product called flotrol to my paint

I have painted a lot of doors, I learned fairly recently a little faster way from a boat repair video of all places. boat painters use a system called roll and tip, essentially where you roll on the paint to get faster coverage, and follow closely with a brush for your grain orientation. if I had one door to paint your way is what I would do, if you have 20 doors like you have in entire house I like the roll and tip method... 5 mins saved per door doesn't make sense for one when you consider cleaning your roller, with 20 though that's the difference in ending the day at 6pm or 730... great video.

Thanks for the video John. I painted eight doors in my house last year and created custom sawhorses that allowed me to screw into the top and bottom of the door. That way I could flip the door around and paint the other side. If you haven't used too much paint you don't need to worry about runs and don't need to wait until the door is fully dry to flip it over. The screw holes on the top and bottom aren't seen, but you could certainly fill them. If this sounds like overkill consider that if you're putting one primer coat and 3 finish coats the amount of time saved is well worth it.

Another great video, John. Thank you!

would you ever recommend a paint conditioner to mix in with the paint?
Aaron Anderson Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Any concerns with the knots showing through the paint eventually?
Duncan MacKenzie Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Good tips. Thanks for the video.

Do you have any recommendations about painting free floating panel doors, cabinet or entry way? Pre-paint before assembly?
MRrwmac Thursday, February 1st, 2018
John, Do you consider the corners of the trim, seem to be a common place for paint to pool? That’s the only time I use a small brush and only to get in there and lap up most of what I can.

So what you are saying is, the procedure of painting the perimeter of panel doors is a pain to prevent pooling?

I learned the hard way that painting doors (or large panels really) is better done flat and that it's worth taking the door off the hinges to do so..

John, I love your projects and handiwork. However, i would respectfully disagree. As someone who has painted hundreds (if not thousands) of doors, I would recommend a slightly different procedure. I prefer to keep the wet edged as I move down the door. Paint the first panel, doing trim portion first then the inside panel. Then I'll paint the adjacent rail. Next, I move down both stiles to keep the edge wet. I next move to the other panel in the same manner. The center rail is next. Complete the outside stiles and then the final rail. Finished up with the edges.On a door such as you have, I would absolutely use a small trim roller along with the brush. However, I would not ever let any portion of the door dry as you suggested would be okay. Lap marks would be inevitable, unless you sand that paint edge.Your door turned out great, so I can't say your method is wrong. Just a difference in opinion. Keep up the great work.

Thank you!

Thanks for addressing this topic. I struggle with brushing an acceptable paint finish.
David Wostrel Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Thanks for the tip!!What is the door behind you for? You didnt mention it in the tour video.

Are there any requirements for fire doors In residential properties in Canada, in the uk an internal door to a garage or a house with a attic conversion need doors with a specific burn times.
Anthony Chapman Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Any worries about the knots bleeding through? Ive experienced that painting pine even with primer coat and 2 top coats of paint. Nice little surprise several months down the road
Patrick Lenz Thursday, February 1st, 2018
As someone who’s. Made a living as a painter. I have to. You have no clue as to how to paint. Anything do you

Man I don't miss painting doors. 6 panel doors should be banned in apartment complexes in college towns. I do not miss that job at all.
James Biggar Thursday, February 1st, 2018
The little details matter. Almost exactly how I do it, except after cutting in the trim I usually use a roller for the large areas and quickly brush over it lightly before it dries to help bring the grain look back.
Gordon Aitchison Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Wouldn't it be great if you could paint at that speed with a brush all the time. :-)

I don't mind telling people where they are wrong, but they shouldn't tell me where I'm wrong... Because I'm never wrong

9" old Emulsion roller then lay it off with a 3" - That's how they're bashed out on site
Kyle Merl Thursday, February 1st, 2018
That's one damn good looking door. I like your stile John....
John S Thursday, February 1st, 2018
I use a roller to get the paint on then I brush it out. Thanks!
Tony Blackwell Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Follow the grain. I hate it when I see a door that has been brush painted with brush marks across the grain. Just looks plain stupid.
Chris Bruce Sr. Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Yea most people probably think painting a door is easy, until they do it! Especially with oil based paint! Lol
