Saturday consisted of a lot of filling, sanding and staining of the two clear finish/ unpainted doors for the half bath and coat closet in the living room. These doors did not come with the house, and were good finds but they needed some love.
I’ve been working in the alley for this project, which gets a surprising amount of sun- plus we like the benefit of not filling our house with sawdust. I started sanding only the areas the really needed it, and sanding gently, but quickly realized it was going to be easier and more consistent to just sand the whole perimeter. Plus I could sand deeper to get out most of the minor dents and dings – which in the end will make for a door worthy of our living room.
Once the filling, sanding & staining is done on all the sides, they’ll receive a coat of poly… Lots of work but will be worth it!
