Welcome to our community KingCharles!

 

Thank you for your question!

 

The first thing  you are going to do is sand the door. Sand it just enough to slightly roughen up the surface, not take off the stain. 

 

After that, prime the door with an exterior oil based primer.

 

Lastly, after the primer has dried, paint it with an exterior paint. Typically, for a front door, a satin or a semi-gloss finish is used.

 

If you have any more questions, please let us know!

 

Christine :)
