I plan to install a door this weekend into an opening the correct width. The plan is to stain and varnish the door.
1. Should I install the door and then take the door off and lay it on carpeted saw-horses and then sand, stain, seal, varnish ?
2. Sand, stain, seal, varnish and then try to install ?
The hardware is polished brass, I want antique, brass. How hard is it to change the hardware ?
