Painted Garage Door

I  was surprised that our garage door was so shy. I had to look long and hard for any photos of the door before it was painted. This is how it looked when we bought the house. There was always a patch where perhaps a lock was moved.

By 2016 the door paint had deteriorated and in 2017 I bought some paint on craigslist that was about the same color.

When Spencer and Dave used the door for a baseball backstop this year though, Dave ended up patching several indentations and then painted it.

The paint has a bit more red in it than the original but it is very good paint (low VOC) and looks pretty good.

Next I have to change the weather stripping at the bottom and spray foam some of the large cracks at the sides.
