I am so excited to share what I have been working on this week. Recently, my mother-in-law picked up a couple of doors that had been cut in half at a garage sale for only $1!!! I mean really, a $1??? Why can't I ever find a deal like that?
To make it, I taped off the panel and painted the outside portion with Home Depot's Behr Bali Bliss (sample size: $3)
Then, I gave the center panel a couple of coats of chalkboard black and tacked on a piece of decorative trim.
I used a tiny brush to clean up the edges around the black, painted out the wooden trim in the Bali Bliss and then rubbed over the scroll work with a watered down black acrylic to add dimension.
It was finished off with a piece of iron work.
(It is funny how taking pictures indoors changes the paint color. The first pics were taken outside in the sunlight and show the rich turquoise color.) Here is the completed project...re-purposed and upcycled.
