How to update an old interior door

In this video I use inexpensive trim to update an old door in my house. I glued and nailed each length of trim on the door to create a raised-panel appearance. Each piece of trim is mitred at 45 degrees, which can be cut very easily with hand tools if needed. The trim was bought for roughly $26 and was enough to complete one door. The door was then primed and painted before being re-hung.

I only used a couple tools in this video, which you can find below…

    Hi! What did you use on top of the nails in the moulding before you sanded and painted it?

    Nice work! Surprised you used a Sharpie to mark the door, did it bleed through the paint like it normally does for me?

    Is that semi gloss and what size nails?

    Plywood door? Is there a reason to use plywood as a door? Here in Indonesia we’re using solid one piece wood, and its pain in the butt to move it around.

    So I don’t have to get all finish off of it? Just a rough sanding?
