continued facelift

October 8, 2008

Inspiration: After being continually inspired by the lovely Off the Wall blog, I decided to go for the big guns and finally indulge myself with a antique blue front door. So here’s what I was going for.

 Execution: I put two coats of the same paint I used on the shutter on the door. I used Valspar’s Antiquing glaze on top of that. Since I didn’t have a space to work on them that was away from the elements the glaze dried much faster than I would have liked, so some spots don’t look quite like I would have prefered. I do however get a smile on my face when I look at my new door.

    I just saw your door for the first time (in the daylight) and it looks really good. It really does looks antique.
