Quick Tip for Painting Doors by Pursuing Vintage - Save Time & Money

 

That’s right – don’t tape your windows!

When I recently painted my front door and back door, I taped all of the windows on the back door – and it was very time consuming.  It took forever to tape, and then, because I didn’t tape perfectly in some spots, I had to go back and touch up.

I found it much easier when painting my front door to skip taping the windows.  After the door was dry, I went back with some wet paper towels and a razor blade.  I found that if I wiped it down first, then scraped it, I could peel the paint off the glass.

The edges looked much cleaner doing it this way.  I saved time and money by not using all that tape!

(However, I would recommend taping around your hardware and door handle).

Looks great, right?!
