I have a room which features a red oak floor, doors, craftsman style
wide trim, and radiator covers. The floor is clear oil varnished, the
rest is stained Minwax Natural, mixed 3:1 with Minwax Golden Oak, then

Then there's the metal entry door, factory painted dove gray... 8^(
The door looks good from the outside, and is durable and secure, but
what to do with the inside...
Since we all appreciate wood here, does anyone have any suggestions on
what to do with the door?
I can gel stain and "grain" it, but I don't know how that would look
side by side with real wood. Painting it the wall color wouldn't
