Painting Paneled Front Entry Doors To Look Like Wood
Yesterday I had a great day today. I got all 20 panels on the front doors painted to look like wood. I am very happy with the amount of work I got done on these doors yesterday. The first thing I did when I got to the home was tape of each panel. I do this the same way I tape off a garage door when I paint them to look like wood. Taping off takes a couple of hours by itself.
After the panels where taped off I applied the first color of brown which is Terra Brun from SW. Then when that dried I applied the second color of wood grain which I got from mixing black into the Terra Brun about one to one. After I got all the panels done I removed the tape.
You can see by the picture that follows I am off to a good start.

The base coat color is a Sherwin Williams color called True Penny and the Brown is Terra Brun for the first pass then I mix black about 1:1 in for the second pass.Delete
