Refinishing a stained wood entry door

Refinishing a stained wood entry door

Over time the sun, heat, cold, and rain can all take their toll on a wood entry door. Even if the door is protected by a porch, the finish will still deteriorate over time.

Here’s how to go about sanding, staining, and finishing a weathered wood entry door.

Refinished a Wood Entry Door:

Take the door off the hinges, and place it horizontally on sawhorses.

Remove the hinges, deadbolt, door knob, and any other hardware.

Sand the door down to bare wood with 100-grit sandpaper.

Sand the door again with 150-grit followed by 220-grit sandpaper.

Apply one to two coats of penetrating stain, wiping off any excess.

Apply two or more coats of spar varnish, allowing each coat to dry.

Reattach the hardware and rehang the door.

Watch the video for details.
