I painted our metal doors with an interior/exterior semi-gloss from one of the chain stores. The front door did okay, but wasn't happy with the two others. Went back to the store and found out should have used a metal primer first (the doors had been painted a horrible brown dull color). Went back and re did the other two doors. Should have done that first as it made a world of difference. The ivory color I used went on great and is easy to clean rain and weather dirt.
