  2. Once its removed from the hinges, place the wooden door on a sturdy flat surface such as two saw horses or a sturdy table
  3. Remove hardware
  4. Then, you want to sand off the old finish using an orbital sander. Start with a lower grit sandpaper like a 100 grit and movde to a 120 until the old finish is removed and the wood is smooth and even
  5. Clean all dust off the wood with a vacuum and a damp rag
  6. Next, finish the door with UV resistant exterior polyutherane with either a brush or a sprayer. Sand the wood with a 220 grit sandpaper then apply another coat. You can also apply a gloss coat for extra protection
