Shell Busey Blog - How To Create Colonial Door With Moulding - April 3rd 2017
Dark wood finish interior doors don't hold a candle compared to the new styled panel doors such as colonial and heritage doors. Would you like to update your doors? You can achieve a colonial or heritage door appearance by adding a crown moulding to the face of the door with small finishing nails or contact cement. First wash the doors well with my Home Cleaning Formula. Rinse well with clear water and lightly sand to remove sheen from existing finish. Apply crown moulding in desired pattern and fill any imperfections around moulding and nail holes with a light weight spackling compound. Apply two coats of water-based urethane using a nylon or polyester brush.
