In Response To: Lighten Dark Stained Door (Bob Hohler)

Do not paint over stained wood surface. Use a medium grade sandpaper to remove the stain entirely from the wood. Then use a light grade sandpaper to give the door a smooth finish. You can then re-stain or repaint. The job is easier if you can borrow an electric sander from someone. I suggest a palm sander that uses a quarter-sheet sandpaper. Find a sander with a built-in dust bag to catch the dust.
