Default Ugliest Door!

Customer just wanted the trim touched up, not the door, for a resale.

Not the kind of look I want. I think they should of matched that frame to the color of the window above.

Rehabbing the brick mold and side light makes that door look even worse than it did before. I'd have offered a discount on the door simply because having the door done also is the right thing to do. I would hate leaving that job like that.

Nice work on the rest though.

Thanks.
Old Masters Gel Stain, Rob hated leaving it like that!
The guy got a good deal because we also did the trim for 56 of these for him.

I think that door is intentionally "rustic" looking. Looks ok, not my taste though.

Whoever buys it will probably hire you to come back & finish the job.

Old Masters is my favorite interior oil stain company. The gel Stain is great for polyurethaned or varnished surfaces where the homeowner doesn't want to pay to strip or sand the clear coat off. Just light sand, tack cloth, and put that gel over it. Let it dry 24-32 hours, then seal it again with a poly or varnish. My favorite half assed way to go! Also great for fiberglass doors, streaking, ect. Though I sure you did a good job, I don't like the look of the door.

Hence the title, "Ugliest door".


Here are some doors we did
