Stripped the old finish off, touched up the paint with artists acrylics and resealed all with General Finishes Exterior 450 water base sealer. Hopefully the sun won’t kill it this time.

Really a cool door and you did an outstanding job on restoring it to its glory. In particular, you did a perfect job of matching pigments without it looking too ‘new’ and bright.

The carved panel on the door was made in Mexico and was imported to the U.S. for this house when it was first built. When it arrived, it was too small for the door opening. A local carpenter had to turn it into a floating panel by putting a frame around it. The door is now 7’ tall by 42” wide and a massive 6” thick. Whoever built the frame did an excellent job because it has excellent balance. It opens effortlessly despite of its mass.
