How do you paint a door frame white?
Hereof, what kind of paint do you use on a door frame?
Pick out a semi-gloss paint in the desired shade. If the door frame you're painting opens to the outside, go with an exterior trim paint instead. Latex-based paints are also easier to maintain than matte and eggshell paints.
Secondly, do you paint the door or the frame first?
When the top is finished, pick one side or another of the door frame and paint from top to bottom, making sure to paint the edge into the wall neatly first before painting the front. If the wall next to the door frame is going to be wallpapered then paint in about an inch onto the wall.
Matching Colors In that case, you may choose to paint the doors the same color as the walls. The paint you use for doors usually has a different sheen than wall paint, and that difference can be more than enough to distinguish the door and make it stand out.
