I have got a heavy double glazed front door with a glass top half and a metal bottom half that was installed by Anglia. And before you say it, it is indeed well ugly. The bottom metal half came covered in something white which it now seems was a thin plasticised veneer. When I got back from a recent holiday, I found this veneer had been scratched off in places- no doubt by the tribe of anti social foxes that frequents my garden. I have now removed it all and have bare metal that looks like the metal used to make the bucket my mum used to boil the pudding cloths up in on the gas stove while stirring them with a wooden spoon. The door now looks like the entrance to a prison. What can I do to improve the situation? Can I paint this sort of shiny metal? I would appreciate your help. Waiting in hopes.
