Rain or shine the first thing visitors see is your front door and summer is nearly here! Time for a DIY on your doorstep. Mr. Speed’s Painting Tools DIY Tip #1 for painting outdoor doors is to be mindful of the weather forecast. Today and tomorrow should have a clear and sunny forecast, not too hot, too cold, or too windy. This allows for the paint to dry at an even temperature.
