Paint metal door with a wood grain

How to paint a metal door with a wood grain pattern

From a recent front door upgrade project, we needed to make a steel door look like wood and rather than special order a door at premium pricing. Instead we ordered a stock door with a decorative ovalĀ  window then painted the wood grain pattern using a graining tool, Zar wood stain and sealing with polyurethane. Watch the video to see how it’s done. It’s easier than you think to get professional looking results.
