Has anyone ever painted the metal around old sliding patio doors..to give them an updated look? Would love to replace them but cannot afford it.

Painting metal can be tricky. Suggest contact one of the local companies that repaint refrigerators, etc. It is not that expensive.

we recently did this and used anodized bronze spray paint. In that case, the doors were weathered quite a bit so we just roughed them up with a light sanding and sprayed the metal. Take care and mask everything carefully as uneven edges is a dead giveaway that you repainted the metal. Anytime you paint a small area, you'll find that prep work takes a lot more time than the actual painting
