The #1 piece of advice I can give you is to get the paint I used.  The paint store lady swore by this, and boy was she right!  I guess she works there for a reason. I did nothing to this door but wipe it down with some light soap and water.  No prep, no sanding, no priming.  As a matter of fact, there is no priming needed for this paint.    I only bought a quart of it, and it has lasted through the back door, my barstools, and most of my bathroom cabinets.  I still have about 1/4 left!
