Looking for the best way to paint a beveled door? It’s easy! Start with Area A, using an angled brush to paint all recessed areas. To prevent brush marks on the larger, smooth areas of your door (B-E), line the recessed areas with painter’s tape. Next, move on to Area B, painting each subsequent area in alphabetical order.
