Door progress

25 Jul

I got a random orbital sander (an el cheap-o number from Harbor Freight Tools) and sanded the door down. Then gave it a good coat of grey primer (had it hanging around). I decided to use a golden marigold or some such color (don’t remember the precise name) from the MS collection at HD. I put one coat on just now — I got exterior semi-gloss enamel. I was wishing for a chartreuse and the color (at one wet coat) is yellower than I wanted. I’ll see after a couple of coats and when it’s dry, but I may have to add some green to it (I have plenty to choose from) and make a custom color.

It looks better than it did.
