Glass is always difficult. You have to remember that glass is clear except for the highlights and distortions present in non-flat glass. So, if the door is flat, youre really not going to see anything except a possible blown out white reflection from the sun and a VERY subtle reflection of you, the viewer.

Weed's right, I don't think you can quickly muscle up glass using filters.  One thing I can suggest is using a 3D modeler to render the door, and then comping the image into Photoshop.  Another is to take a picture of glass that's similar to what you want, and again comping and adjusting to fit.  Lighting is the all important key to rendering any glass image digitally, once you see how the lights involved you're home free...
