Renewing doors

Posted by CEFreeman (My Page) on

Hi all!

I've picked up a bunch of doors (will total 15) at the Community Forklift here in the DC area.

Some I'd love to strip, but there are decades of paint on them.

A couple French doors have decent, white-ish paint jobs on them.
I was even considering antiquing them a bit more and was wondering about crackle paint. Has anyone used it?
Pros and cons? And definately opinions, please?

I'm going to be reading there forever!

I have a back porch that has a 16'10" long, 54" tall screened area. I wanted to get a little protection from the weather by hanging old windows in that space.

What a great site!
Thanks for writing
