Gel Stain Door

I decided to jazz up my front door - which was white steel. I found a few D.I.Y. makeovers on pinterest that I gained inspiration and tips from during my research phase.

This is what I started with.

I then painted the door a burnt orange color for the base color.

I used gel stain called "Early American" for the first coat. I also purchased a wood graining tool to get a realistic wood appearance.

I went over the "Early American" stain with darker gel stain and when the staining was complete I sealed it with a satin polyurethane. 

Here is a before and after of the inside of the door. 

I also used this technique on the outside of the door.
