Painting alum. screen door, anyone?

I've painted woodwork, shutters, chandeliers and may other items that I desired to change the color, but now I have these very sturdy "country blue" screen doors on the front and back of my 1950's new purchase and I have know idea how to tackle them. The finish appears to be baked on, so I'm afraid of spraying them...a brush will leave marks...I know I can replace but it would be nice to save a buck...Any thoughts would be appreciated!

PS I will be painting white.

These can be painted over either by spray or brush.

Clean , prime then paint with a quality exterior latex ... preferably acrylic latex.

Hope this helps. :)
