The door in this case was a brown varnished door where the varnish was peeling and weathering, the end goal was to have a coloured door.

The first job was to prepared the surface of the door, this was started by removing the door furniture and filling and holes or major imperfections with a good quality filler. The door could then be sanded thoroughly to create a smooth surface and provide a key for the paint.
