Front doors are a favorite place to hang wreaths for different occasions throughout the year. If you have a wooden door and put a nail in it in order to hang a wreath or other decoration, you might want to repair the nail damage. Follow these simple steps to repair nail damage to wooden doors:
- Using medium-grit sand paper, even out the surface and remove any debris from the area around the nail hole.
- Fill the hole with wood filler using a putty knife, but make sure not to overfill it. Let it dry.
- Once the filling is completely dry, even out the area with medium-grit sand paper and then smooth it out further with fine-grit sand paper.
- Apply wood stain or paint to the repaired area so that it matches the rest of the door.
Filling nail holes and repairing wooden doors with nail damage is fairly easy to do, but if you decide to hang something on your front door in the future, you might want to consider using adhesive hooks to avoid additional damage.
