I would replace the hinges first and test the door to see if it operates properly. Then remove the pins, mask the hardware and paint the door using two saw horses. If you are painting both sides, you can part-way drive a heavy nail in the top and bottom--the door is suspended on the nails so you can pivot the door to paint both sides.
