By 65 Comments

Hey there! Today, I am sharing how to paint a plain white door to look like wood.  While our house was under the bathroom construction I had to stay home every day.  After I was finished with all the Christmas decorating I found something else I have been wanting to do for years.  I knew my husband would not mind me experimenting in this room because the door was pretty shot regardless.  The boys used to have a basketball hoop set up over it and they banged the heck out of the door.  So it was either paint it white or try my experiment.  I am sure this has been done before but I didn’t even look up how to do it.  I just winged it.  It worked! The workers I had here happened to go in the room that day and they asked if I had done that.  I said, yes, they were impressed lol!

This was not a hard project at all.  In fact, I was really happy at how easy it truly was. Start with your basic supplies.  This was the first time I ever worked with gel stain, and I loved it.  No drip, no mess. I did use traditional Minwax stain to go over it and that is where the job can get a little messy. You want to be sure to cover your work area.  The plastic drop cloths were great. NOTE: The only reason I went over it with another stain was for one, it was an experiment, and for two, I wanted to have a two-toned color, which in fact, I did achieve with using both the gel and regular stain:)

Here is the before:

Be sure to use your gloves.  Stain can be messy.  The nice thing about gel stain is there is no drip.  However, there is a traditional stain that I used to go over it.

The door required two good coats of the gel stain.  I then let it dry overnight.

The next morning I went over it with my color choice of stain with just a rag. I wiped in some areas to get the somewhat weathered look.  The nice thing about applying the gel as an undercoat is that when I did wipe, it appeared as though it was real wood underneath. I did not use varnish or sealer. The doors have held up well. However, they are not used every day, so use your own judgment.

Lean To Roof Trusseshow to Lean To Roof Trusses for I changed the hardware too.  There you see my goodwill table I made over a few months ago. Compliments the door nicely, I would say. That’s all there is to that project! I think this would look super on a pantry door as well.

Back in the day, I painted our pantry door red and loved it for years.  That was up until this past year when we actually had a custom tobacco wood barn door.  I love that rustic look.  Plus, it takes the wear and tears that my boys tend to give everything around here.

I guess it was all about doors today! Now go tackle one.

    Hi Debbie,
    Great Job! Love your blog, such a talented lady 😉
    I understand that you used 2 colors of stain on the project the first being ‘General Finishes’ Java in the gel stain done with 2 coats.
    What was the second stain color used to get the 2 toned look on your particular doors? I know you mentioned it was regular liquid stain that you wiped in as an accent color.
    Have a great day!
    Sondra
