How to Refinish a Door
Hi, I'm Mark Donovan from homeeditionplus.com. Today, I'm in the process of completing the restoration of a solid six panel wood door. This particular door of the bathroom and was exposed straight from a shower. The surface that became pitted and stained so, what I did was I took an orbital hand sander and with—paper and sanded the entire flat surface of the door, all the styles and rails down to the bare wood.
Likewise, I took a foam sanding block, sandpaper and did all of the internal edges around the raised panels together move all of the stain and all polyurethane that was originally on the door. Once they removed all of the stain with the 60 grit, I went back and repeat the process with 120 grit sandpaper.
I did stain it with the Minwax stain and then applied two coats of polyurethane finish on the surface. In between coats of polyurethane surface I lightly sanded with some steel wool. When I'm about to get out, I was—store up, I then apply a butcher wax to the surface of the door to give a final smooth surface to it and then we’re going to mount it on the door and wrap up this project.
So, I got to make sure the door is completely free of dust. I'm using a butcher wax and in fact, I'm just rubbing it on the surface of the door. I'm going to let that soaked in for about five minutes.
Now what we would do is buff out the butcher wax with a dry and clean cloth. I'm just going to lightly rub it over the door, get a smooth surface. With any door restoration project, you absolutely want to remove all of the hardware before you should do any sanding on the door. So before we can hang this door up, I'm now re-installing all of the hardware in this case, the hinges plates unto the side of the door. We’ve also put on the door knob. So now I'm just wrapping up installing the door knob on the door and we’ll be ready to reinstall this door in the bathroom.
All right, so we’re doing is tapping in the hinge pins into the hedges to complete the installation of this door. So that wraps up the restoration of this bathroom door. If you have other home improvement questions, visit us at homeeditionplus.com today.
