It looks like plain old white flat paint on them now. That's the feel of it. I wanted to give it a shinier finish somehow. The paint is all chipped off in many places so they need to be redone. The automotive paint idea is intriguing though, will have to ask my husband if he could arrange that!

Painting Bifold doors

We have ALOT of white painted metal bifold doors throughout the house. Are these easy enough to take down and repaint? Should I try to sand off the old paint or how to prep them? I'd probably just paint them white again since all the trim is white anyway.

The previous owner said the kitchen and master bath were just too far gone to save which is why he updated it all. I would probably go with a dark or black quartz for the counter top as that's about all that goes with the backsplash unless I change that out. Depends on how much of a home equity loan...

Floor, Kitchen & more help - Techbuilt house

We bought this house from the 2nd owner in June 2009. Some is original, some is not. We plan to live here for another 4 yrs or so and then sell it and move to a warmer state. So anything we do to the house we need to keep resale in mind. The kitchen is an IKEA kitchen that the last owner put in arou...

The current owners have the blueprints from when the house was built but the original owners never gave them the sales brochure when they had bought the place new. I'll have to ask them if they have photos from when they bought it. I know the garage roof is new, it had to be replaced after a tree fe...

We'll try to find a way to disguise the A/C unit. I hate walking out and seeing it sitting right there, bit of an eyesore. The house is move in ready, really I just want to paint to liven the inside up a little. Alot of the walls are white and the blue and brown combo just doesn't do much for me. Th...

Roof and siding are original. The current owner painted the red just a few years ago, forgot to ask him if he kept the original color or changed it to red. The doors are all in good condition, there is a storm door on the side door that needs to go as it is broken. Not sure what to replace it with, ...

Buying an MCM soon, some questions

My husband and I are purchasing a 2 story MCM Armco Steel Techbuilt home. We hope to close on it in early June. It is approximately 2400 sq ft. which will likely feel a little small at first with us, our 4 dogs, 1 cat and one 20 month old daughter. It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath. The master bath has been ...
