    The door I have is a fiberglass skinned thermal door with wood grain effect, originally stained with a dark water based colour.

    Now I want to re-colour it White.

    Could I get a White stain and apply several coats to cover the dark stain.

    Or what other method could use to re-colour it, without losing the grain and joints effect.

    thanks

    Found that either a Acrylic paint or a Gel stain could be used to stain/paint.

    My problem is the door has been stain a very dark colour and I want it to be a White now.

    Any clues or Tips. Also it appears acrylic or gel is not widely available.

    thanks
