I love painted screen doors and windows! Yours look great! How do you get the paint not to all go out through the screen holes?

RE: screen doors

Thank you for the compliments. I used ordinary Latex outdoor paints. No pattern, and painted the doors laying down over sawhorses with lots.... LOTS of newspapers under neath. Most of the colors took a couple coats to get the brightness I wanted. I used more of a "stamping/stenciling" technique instead of "painting" with paintbrushes. Used those "spongey" stencil brushes.

Thanks again!!
