How to Refinish an Old Door with Blake Sloane

Door Restore Web

Ryan and Blake show off their newly restored door.

Ryan and the Rebuilding Exchange’s Blake Sloane take to the RAM Truck Workshop at the Rebuilding Exchange to refinish a sad, old door without any sanding, stripping or hard chemicals.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rubber gloves
  • Denatured alcohol
  • Restor-a-Finish
  • #0000 steel wool
  • Cotton rags

This is how you do it:

  1. Lightly scour door with steel wool and denatured alcohol.
  2. Wipe on Restor-a-Finish using cotton rag.
  3. Wipe excess Restor-a-Finish with clean cotton rag.

It’s a simple project that makes a world of difference. It took just 15 minutes and about $5 worth of supplies.
