Although this is super cute as is (thank you Karla!), it was screaming for some color!
I call it an old door frame but I think it’s really the molding across the top of old doors. This was in really good shape!
Aren’t these paper designs cute? They were perfect to add some texture to this rather flat board.
Measuring carefully, I centered the paper cut outs across the board and glued them down. Then gave the door frame a good sanding which also chipped it up a little. I love chipiness!
And of course I painted it turquoise! I am in LOVE with this color. After a few coats of paint, I roughed it up with sandpaper then got out my secret weapon, Valspar Antiquing Glaze, to give it that old antiqued look that always adds nice texture. But of course I forgot to document those steps!
Next step was drilling holes in the center of the paper cut outs for the knobs.
My idea worked out perfectly! I loved the added texture!
I’m in love.
I stare at it everyday hanging in my office.
It turned out so awesome!
Especially this cute little guy!
