Divided Light Doors...


For you pros out there...

These are true divided light doors.

How long would it take you to paint what is shown in the picture...2 coats?

Re: Divided Light Doors...


Assuming everything is prepped and clean and ready to paint , about 30- 45 minutes a coat , one side , including door edges and jamb .

If prep is required, it depends on what it needs.

Re: Divided Light Doors...


I'd figure an hour or so a side. Just use the right brush.

Re: Divided Light Doors...


Took me about 90 minutes per door; too slow.

The doors were older and just needed to be vacuumed, scuffed and painted.

I didn't worry much about all that cutting in and just scraped the paint off the glass after I was done.

That sounds about right, including the window scraper clean-up.

I know painters that would have done very little scraping afterwards.

I can do that without scraping, and probably so can you. What paint and what brush did you use?

Re: Divided Light Doors...


Sometimes it is a balance of cutting in slowly and carefully, or scraping a little glass.

Re: Divided Light Doors...


Old exterior wood windows are the worst. First coat should overlap the glass slightly, and second coat should overlap the first coat onto the glass. Scraping it is suboptimal, you put the paint on and leave it.

Sometimes you can borrow from pinstripers and choke up on the brush, then drag your little or ring finger along the top of the mullion to get a clean line.

One thing to keep in mind, as you age, your hand may become less steady. You just adjust how you do things.
