Do doors get any uglier than this? Really? This is a 36" door. There are two of them, in fact. Budd and I wanted to get rid of them and replace them with smaller ones. Johnny wanted to leave them alone, he said we have enough work to do, on that point he is definitely correct.
Well, I couldn't leave them alone, so I figured it was worth a try to make them look better.
It's always a process, paint, antique, sand, design!
Settle on a plan, and forge ahead!
See what I mean? Paint, stain, sand. 1,2,3!
Then stand back and have a look...and look... and look!
And look again, close up, far away, upside and and inside out!
Put it back in place.
And much later, finally begin painting to cover up that red wall!
I've had good reviews by people who have come to tour the stone house, so I'm taking this as a success!
Now on to the next one. This door was in the house when we bought it, but it is not original to the house when it was built. It doesn't show so much here, but it was very orange, and a little beat up.
Enter Java Gel Stain by General Finishes. This product is incredible! This is my own personal opinion and I am not compensated by General Finishes in any way, although, I wouldn't refuse, if you know what I'm saying.
Here is a picture of the door finished, and trimmed out.
These are original French doors that we removed, and later replaced. I just started working on these, but then sunshine and warmer temperatures called, so you will have to wait until Spring to see the finished product.
Not really a cliff hanger, but I hope you will come back and check it out again.
