A paint job gone baadd....
I have painted and stained lots of things in my life, including metal doors. I was not afraid of painting our new front door -piece of cake ..eye roll.
I am now fairly certain that the Rustoleum paint I used was a bad batch. I'm planning on calling the company tomorrow.
From the get go it just seemed thicker than normal and was not laying right. I did 2 coats with a brush and then a third with a roller (my hope was to even out the texture with the roller). It was a smooth door to start and now it looks like I painted an oak door. ARGH!!
I am so sick over this I told my DH just to put the hardware back on it so that I could take a few days to regroup.
My question: Should i just strip the whole damn thing and start over? Can I sand out the bumps and repaint?
I'm most likely just going to buy a brand new can of paint but, in the future, can you thin an oil based paint if you think it's too thick?
Here are the pics of the door (for some reason the house numbers look huge..I'd like to get rid of them but they are screwed into the aluminum siding and I don't think I'd be able to match new numbers exactly where the old ones are)
