Case Study: Restaining Wooden Doors at Domaine Drouhin Winery

The Smith and Company Painting team recently finished a wooden door project at the Domaine Drouhin Winery in Dayton, OR. The team worked for a week restaining wooden doors, improving their functionality and look at the local winery.

The wooden doors started in poor condition and the team was hired by the winery to restore them. We began by completely stripping off the old clear coat from the doors to start from scratch. Once the doors were bare, we sanded them down, applied wood bleach and two coats of an industrial wood clear coat.

The doors had dark water stains from the environment. To get those stains out of the wood, the team used wood bleach. It took several applications and lots of sanding, but we were able to get the stains out and the wooden doors looking great.

We chose an industrial clear sealer that will hold up well in the damp environment of the winery. It was a Pro Line Prothane 4800 High Solids Polyurethane, ordered from Sherwin-Williams.

Restaining the wooden doors at the Dayton winery had its difficulties, as all water-damaged wood has. At the end of the job, the doors looked as good as new and the owners at Domaine Drouhin Winery were extremely satisfied.
