The key to a good paint job is in the prep. Make sure the doors are clean and free of rust. Get a good primer followed by two coats of a good quality paint.

Thanks, Mike
Actually the doors are new, haven't been delivered and are white. I wanted a "barn door" looking garage door and the only reasonably-priced steel door came only in white.

I saw a similar door painted to look like wood; hoping I can get the same look.
