How to Paint a Security Door - Part 5 of 5 - Bronze Security Plate Painted Silver

Blue painter's tape
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Blue painter's tape
Silver metal spray paint

Mrs. Wrighthood needed a second mortgage on her home business. She had to qualify for the loan and had been told by her real estate agent that her front door needed some work. She called my service to restore her front door.

This post shows the eight steps to paint a security plate that was bronze to silver.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the old brass plate with blue painter's tape on the corners. The thought was to paint the plate on the door, but it was decided that it would be a better job if the dead bolt and door knobs were removed.

Step 2: Fig.2 shows a razor blade to cut off the blue tape from the bronze plate. Painting in place on the door was not working, so the plate was removed.
