Antiqued Door

The Door...

This is the old door.  I think it is about 20 years old. As you can see it very weathered. I'm hoping I can use that to my advantage. All of the varnish was pretty much worn away so I didn't need to sand. Yeah! I did use blue painters tape though to tape off the glass and door knob.

I used Valspar Gloss Cherry paint (1 quart ) for the door.
 It took about 3 coats because the wood was really soaking it up.

To antique the door I used American Tradition 
Faux Antiquing Glaze (asphaltum 98278).
All you do is brush it on and then use 
a soft cloth to wipe off the excess.
 Make sure you follow the grain.

Voila!  Finished! Now it just needs a wreath!
