Mrs. Wrighthood needed a second mortgage on her home business. She had to qualify for the loan and had been told by her real estate agent that her front door needed repainting. She called my service company for an emergency repair. This is post shows the progression of painting the metal security door, the wood front door on both sides, the metal door frame, and installing the door hardware.

This post shows the eight steps to paint a wood door on both sides.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the metal has been painted white and the inside wood door needs to be painted with semi-gloss white paint.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the door locking hardware being removed.
