Garage Build, Painting our exterior doors

I’m back from lovely Mexico! More on that later. For now here’s an update on our garage…

We got our doors and I proceeded to paint with my paint sprayer, in this paint that Aubrey picked up – recommended to him for exterior doors. 

I spent a TON of time prepping and then got to work spraying. 

Looking good right? 

No. Not looking good. When I went to peel off the painters tape, the paint started pulling off in sheets!

This is when started cursing. And texting angry things to Aubrey about how I hated the door. 

I sanded and peeled the door and right before leaving for Mexico I primed it prepping for a second paint attempt. But this time NOT black. When I stared at the doors, in all their peeling glory – black was too harsh of a colour to go with. So it’s back to the drawing board. 

Im not sure why the doors peeled. The paint was paint + primer in one – which is never my favourite but I thought I’d give it a go. Fingers crossed the next attempt works out better.
