Exterior Door Painting vs. Stain


I live in the northeast and have a log home. My entryway door is wood and needs color. Do I paint or stain? I want the exterior a forest green. Also, has anyone seen the interior of an entryway door a different color than the exterior?

You could do either
Personally I like the solid color (oil-based) stain idea
But whether I would use it on your door depends on what kind of door it is, and what's on there now

Yes, all the time
