Refinish a wooden door

Step 1: Remove door from hinges

Remove the door hinge pins to remove the door and lay the door on a flat surface.

Step 2: Sand the door 

Use a palm sander with fine grit to give the door a light sanding. Careful to not leave in one spot too long to avoid damaging the wood.

Step 3: Wipe and condition 

Remove all dust and use a pre-conditioner that will help the wood absorb the stain more evenly.

Step 4: Stain the door and let it dries 

Step 5: Varnish and mount 

Finish a varnish to protect the wood, let it dries and mount the finished door.
