Project Resources


Step 1

Remove any loose paint (on an old door) and wash the surface with dishwashing detergent or TSP. Mark a horizontal line 30 inches from the top of the door and paint the top section (Sassy Green shown). Recoat two more times or as needed, but avoid heavy coats.

Good to Know

On older doors, test for lead paint before scraping, sanding, or removing any of the old finish.

Step 2

Mark a horizontal line 28 inches from the top and tape off the area above the line. Paint along the bottom edge of the tape in the same color as the top section to seal the tape edge. After that dries, paint the bottom section (Ocean Soul shown). Recoat two more times or as needed. Remove the tape after the final coat.

Step 3

Print out the Door Number Patterns for the address numbers you need. Trim the pattern to within 1/4 inch of the lines. To transfer the patterns, cut transfer paper to size or rub a pencil on the reverse side of each pattern just over the lines.

Step 4

Tape the numbers on the door. We positioned ours to end about 3/4 inch from the right side of the door and rest on the paint line. Trace over the number lines to transfer the pattern to the door. Use a straightedge or ruler where possible. Remove the patterns.

Step 5

Use artist’s brushes to paint the numbers the same color as the bottom door section. Repeat two more times or as needed.
