Default Small paint job cost

How much to paint 1 door completely? I got a door from a friend here to replace a smashed in one that I had but its red and my car is green and I dont want to look ghetto anymore. Its the drivers side rear door and I want it green. Will they just paint over it or will they strip the paint and go at it? Im guessing a couple hundred but I dont know. Im trying to figure out what I want for Christmas and its either this or an exhaust but I think an exhaust might look weird with this door being all pink and stuff.

I could even go for a do it myself job and strip and primer it Im just sick of the red door thing. Would it be cool to just strip the paint myself and have it primered and ready to paint cheap?
