Its painted; go to hardware store. Buy spackle and sand paper. Sand it down, spacke the scrapes. Sand the spackle. Repeat again, though after this spackle prime the door. Then spackle and prime and paint. You are looking at spackle 3 or more times, priming it more than once and then paitning two coats. Alot of work. But less expensive than a new door.
Check the weepholes and make sure they are not clogged. These holes allow water to drain outside of the window, and are on both sides of the window. If they are clogged then the water will drain wherever it can - inside your walls and house. When the window is closed, you are making it harder for the water to get inside. I suggest taking the tip of a knife and just cleaning them out to see if that helps.
Is there a leak when it's raining or is it just when the window is open in general? If it's simply when the window is open, then there could be several varying possible reasons as to why the basement leaks, solely when the window remains open. Bad timing, as off putting as that sounds. If it's when the window is open during a rain fall, the window could have lost its seal. Rain could leak in through the wall and then to the basement ceiling. If that's the case, I would recommend a new window seal, or replacing the entire window altogether.

The picture of the door looks to have polyurethane applied. If this is the case, that’s most likely an oil based finish. If you are trying to apply a latex base interior paint it will not work unless the finish is completely stripped off.
With out physically seeing this myself I can only speculate this to be the issue. The proper tradesmen to contact would be a Painter.
Thank you for inquiring with Ferris Home Improvements but unfortunatley this is not in our scope of work. Feel free to contact us with any questions or future projects. Have a great afternoon
