Holes in Antique Pine Door

Posted by unionworkeruk (My Page) on

I have recently bought an old pine door. I have planed and sanded, filled holes with Antique Pine filler and varnished with Antique Pine Varnish. Looks great apart from orange dots and streaks of the filler which does not match the varnish! I have also tried Natural Pine Filler and all I get is white dots and streaks. The door also was filled around the panels which now stand out in orange.
How can I put this right and how should I fill the holes and gaps in my other old pine doors?
As you can guess I am an amateur and would be grateful for any advice.

RE: Holes in Antique Pine Door

I have used filler....namely rock hard putty in holes in old pine stuff...not valuable antiques ( at least they weren't valuable when I bought them!) and then taken artists oil paints and painted the putty filler to match the wood, grain and all. I let it dry for about a week and then varnished it....looks great!
