In a well-ventilated space, cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp.
Before starting, read the Krylon® labels for safety, application, and dry time instructions.
Remove the closet doors from the frame and place them in an area separate from where you will paint. Use a fine-grit sandpaper to sand the closet doors, then use a clean rag to remove any sanding dust, ensuring that the surface of the doors is clean, dull, and dry before spray painting.
Remove the doorknobs and other hardware from the door and set aside. If you cannot remove them, cover with painter’s tape to protect from overspray.
Place the doors on the drop cloth. Use scissors to cut construction paper or cardboard to the size of the upper door inset. Secure to the door using painter’s tape to protect the inset from any overspray.
Apply Krylon COLORmaxx in Satin Ballet Slipper to the exposed portion of the door.
When the COLORmaxx is dry to the touch, remove the painter’s tape and allow the COLORmaxx to dry fully.
When the COLORmaxx is fully dry, use construction paper or cardboard and painter’s tape to cover the areas you already spray painted.
Apply Krylon Brilliant Metallic Brush-On in Gold Leaf to the exposed portion of the door using a high-quality paint brush.
When the Brilliant Metallic Brush-On if fully dry, use a high-quality paint brush to apply Krylon Glitter Finish in Gold on top of the Brilliant Metallic Gold. For buildable coverage, apply 1, 2, or 3 coats. The more coats applied, the more opaque the glitter finish will appear.
When the glitter finish is fully dry, remove the painter’s tape and construction paper or cardboard from the surrounding areas. If you were unable to remove the door’s hardware, remove the painter’s tape from these areas as well. Otherwise, reattach them and hang the door back in its frame.
Enjoy your new statement door!
