YOU WILL NEED:
There are quite a few projects on Home-Dzine that show how to make your own barn door, but this one in particular, is my favourite. This project gives a nice, neat finish and it's easy to do. There are other options in our DIY Section.
1. Once you have finished your barn door, give it a good sanding with 120-grit and then 180/240-grit sandpaper for a smooth finish. Wipe clean to remove all traces of dust in preparation for painting.
GOOD TO KNOW: Set up a work space outdoors. Put down a drop cloth and place your door on a workbench.
2. Shake the spray paint well - for at least a minute - and continue to shake the can as you work.
3. Hold the can approximately 30 centimetres away for the surface and apply light even strokes in a side-to-side motion. It is also important to slightly overlap the strokes for a solid consistent finish.
GOOD TO KNOW: Allow each coat to dry before applying the next coat.
