2 ways------paint it, or put a "kick plate" on it. If painting, use a spray can of oil-based primer. spray it on twice, leaving it dry 1 day between coats. Then, either paint the lower half of the door, or the whole door with whatever color you want to.

The other way is to put 1 or 2 kick plates on it. They sell them in the door sections of Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. I believe you can buy them in either aluminum or brass. Neither will rust. They are usually 30" to 36" wide, and 6-8" high. If 1 doesn't cover the rusty area, adding a 2nd one should do it.

Thanks - think the kick plate idea will work the best or at least be the easiest.

    The kick plate looks great - would never know - can't figure out why it rusted - but dogs or the magnetic door thing may have cause - since it was never exposed directly to the outside. Oh well, looks good now :)
