Ever since I posted this photo of our metal front door (yeah, you heard me – metal) on Instagram, I have had so many question on how I make it look like wood.  I told you I would share the process and learning curve, so here it is!

We have been in the new house for about 2 months now and I feel somewhat organized and settled.  To the point that I think I will finally start blogging on a more regular basis.  I feel like I have so much to share with you from the building process and all the projects we worked on along the way.

Choosing a front door was easy for me.  I had searched Pinterest and saved so many inspiration photos, that I knew exactly what I wanted.  Problem was, our building budget was starting to bulge at the seems and a wooden door was out of the question.  I decided to have our builder purchase a white metal door and I would make it look like wood.  Seemed simple enough to me!

I started by googling the idea and came up with several videos where a wood graining tool was used along with Zar Wood Stain.  The video shows applying a coat of stain to the door and using the wood grain tool to create the look of, well wood grain.  (this is the tool I used)
I followed all of the directions from the videos, applied the first coat of stain.  I used the stain I had on hand because it matched our fireplace mantel and island.   After mastering the wood grain technique, I let the first coat dry as suggested.

Second step, seemed to be the easiest of all.  Apply a second coat of stain, wiping it on with a cloth, let dry, seal and you are done!!!  WRONG!  In both videos I watched, Zar Wood Stain was used……who would have thought you HAVE to use Zar wood stain to make this work.  (THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST BY THE WAY) Please learn from my mistakes.

Can you guess what happened when I applied my second coat of stain?  If you guessed, “the wood grain wiped off” you are right!!  All that work was gone with one swipe of my rag!  I may have swore a little at this point!  So learn this lesson from me, if you try this technique, which is really pretty simple, use Zar Wood Stain!!!

It I kind of hard to see in the picture above, but this is not what the second coat should have looked like!  After I realized the second coat of stain was wiping off my wood grain, I had to be very careful.  Problem was, it wasn’t wiping all of it off and I wasn’t sure how I was going to re-create the grain.  I didn’t know if I could paint the door white again, probably could have………..but I would rather give myself an anxiety attack and push through this mess!

I ran out and bought several shades of ZAR Wood Stain, not knowing what color would match the mess I had already started.  After applying several additional coats of stain to obtain the color I wanted and the look (kind of) I finally stopped before I made it worse!

I have to apologize – These pictures are not the best – I was working on the door in the middle of construction and didn’t want to bring my good camera in with all the dust.

Now to show you how simple the process is when you use Zar Wood Stain from the start:

Step 1- Apply first coat and use wood graining tool, let dry
Step 2: Apply Second Coat, let dry


When I the 1 last update 2020/07/07 applied the Zar Wood Stain, the process in the video worked just as they said it did!  So for my door, both sides look just a little different.  However, until I just told you this, I don’t think you would even notice.

    This is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing. 🙂 Is the window pane grid made of wood or plastic? We have a double French door with the same insert made of plastic, and I’m hoping this will work on our plastic.

      Hi Michelle,
      The grid on our door is plastic, so the process should work for you! Good Luck

      Wood Panga Planshow to Wood Panga Plans for Hi Jessie,
      I used three colors, Cherry, Antique American and walnut. I was trying to match a previously mixed stain on our fireplace and the other side of the door. If I would have know about how the Zar stain worked when I applied it to the first side, I wouldn’t have had to go through the mixing.

    Do you have a link to the wood grain tool you used? Also, our existing door is a light burgundy. Do you think this would still work?
    Thanks!

    • Jodi says

      I don’t have a link – but I picked it up at our local hardware store.
      You may want to paint your door a flat primer white first. Good luck

    This is what I have been wanting to do to 4 metal doors on our house. I am glad there is a product to do this. After the second coat of Zar paint do you use the wood graining tool again ?

    • Jodi says

      Hi Kathy,
      sorry it took me so long to get back to you – you only use the wood grain tool in the first step. Good luck

      Thank you Jeanette, it was a learning curve! I am in the process of working on another project with Zar stain, can’t wait to share!

    Did you have to seal it with anything or is it just multiple coats of stain?

    • Jodi for 1 last update 2020/07/07 sayssays

      Sorry for the delayed response. I only used two coats then sealed it with a poly.

    If I were going to go from start to finish, would I use the same color for both coats? I am trying to achieve a natural golden oak color to match my garage doors. On the doors, it looks as if the grain is a lot darker and the top.. more golden. Or would I do the wood grain a darker color and choose a light color on top? Maybe this look is achieved by using the same color for both steps? I know your color is a mix but did you ultimately use the same color mix for both steps?

      I use the same color for both steps. you could always do a small test spot and if you don’t like it paint over it or use a thinner to remove the stain. Good Luck
