FADED TO FABULOUS!
Staining projects can be time consuming and messy. Typically when you think of staining you think about wood, however, when I took on the project of staining my front door I discovered it was fiberglass and it required something a bit different. To my surprise, I learned that fiberglass stain uses a gel, which is much easier to apply and easier to work with.
My front door had faded by the sun and looked white-washed. So this weekend I decided my weekend warrior project would be to restore it to its former glory!
I stopped by Home Depot to talk with someone about the door. He showed me exactly what I needed. (SIDE NOTE: I just love Home Depot because the people are so helpful and really know their stuff!). All I needed was a gel stain and a sponge brush to apply.
The gel is thick so the sponge brush picks up only a small amount to apply at a time. Apply the gel generously and evenly. Be sure to get into all the crevices and wipe off any extra. Allow to dry for 6-8 hours.
Here is the result...
This project only took me about 1 hour. So simple almost anyone can do it.
