Cute 4 paneled door. It had lots of layers of paint. I ended up giving it a good sanding to get rid of any loose paint, but didn't take it down to the bare wood because I think texture is what gives an old door its charm. It's going to be repurposed as a headboard for a little girl, so I wanted to keep it bright, but still make it feel a little worn.
Did the undercoat two shades lighter than the final coat to give it some depth when I distressed it.
Yep, it's upside down in the pics. That's how it was when I carried it over there and I was too lazy to give it a flip. :)
This is the original ceramic door knob. Just needed a little cleaning up. I love it!
Had such a hard time getting a pic that was true to the color. It's a little brighter and a littler greener than this one. :)
I need to hire a photographer! ;)
undercoat = Dancing Green
topcoat = Overt Green
