Painted doors indoor need a new coat from time to time. Be they touching up unsightly defects or simply the need to implement the desire for a change of colour. You have found the right coat with ADLER VariColor for this purpose! ADLER shows you how you can change the appearance of the door with little effort and a bit of knack:



  1. Step 1: Preparation

    As the first working step, remove the door and place it on two blocks.

  2. Remove all existing fittings and locks.

  3. Professional tip:

    Install two long screws each on the top and bottom small side. Subsequently, when you have coated the first side, you can simply turn the door around and place the door on these screws and coat the second side of the door without having to wait.

  4. Step 2: Sand the surface

    Sand off the old coated layers on the wooden surface with an eccentric grinder (grain size 120). At points that are difficult to access, you can use normal sandpaper. Remove the dust thoroughly and finally mask the glass surface with adhesive tape and insulating paper.

  5. Step 3: Filling up holes

    It is best to fill up any holes in the wooden surfaces using ADLER Feinspachtel. Simply apply it, smear it smoothly and sand it smoothly after a little drying time.

  6. Step 4: Coating

    Stir ADLER VariColor thoroughly before applying the coat and pour it into a paint tub. Apply it along the decorative strip and the door rebate. You can use the roller brush to apply the coat to the large areas. Thanks to the screws, you can turn the door around immediately after applying the coat and then coat the back side of the door. Work quickly and using the "wet on wet" method. The coat bonds quickly, which is why you should no longer work with surfaces that have already been coated and allow them to dry in peace for five to six hours.

  7. Step 5: Intermediate sanding and second layer of coating

    After the first film of coating has dried, use fine sandpaper (grain size 220) to sand all the coated surfaces. Here, too: Remove the sanding dust thoroughly. Finally, apply the coat a second time.

  8. Finally, apply the coat a second time.

  9. ADLER Decorative tip:

    Your door will become a real eye-catcher if you coat the decorative strip using another colour. We opted for the colour shade RAL 1003, "Dahlia" yellow.
