Painting

The paint on the door of the cart was beginning to bubble and peel. Scraping off layers I discovered an old paintjob that attempted to replicate wood. There was a dark brown paint with light brown brushstrokes. Then in an attempt to really make it look like a wood door, they put a coat of polyurethane on top. Perhaps not such a bad idea, but then painting over that was not the most weatherproof choice. The door is made out of metal, it's very tricky and all done to look like a paneled door, which it is, but each element is wrapped in zinc. I scraped off as much paint as I could and am now painting it dark green. I also need to make a little awning for the door so it doesn't peel again.
