Did you know you can stain fiberglass? One of my favorite products I’ve found is “General Finishes, Gel Stain”. It works on anything it seems. I’ve stained the kitchen cabinets (post about that soon!!), furniture, and now fiber glass doors. I chose to stain the inside of our outside doors with the gel stain. I chose “Java” and it is gorgeous!
I started with the plain white doors
Below are the materials I used. I sanded (220 grit) the doors, washed them with a sponge, and started staining. I wore gloves and used an old, clean sock to stain.
This is what one coat of stain looked like. Very streaky!
This is what two coats look like. A ton better but still a little streaky.
The final product on all three doors…
Laundry Room Door
The longest part of the whole process is waiting for the stain to dry between coats; at least 24 hours between coats. You don’t have to be a professional painter to have good looking doors when using gel stain. Happy staining!
