Hello friends things have been busy here and the weather has finally improved.
Many of you may recognize this door. I made the purchase after debating and waiting for a bit. Truth, the finish on this piece was nothing that I expected. Truth, it looked as if it had been sponge painted. This is not the look I wanted and was looking for with my décor.
So, the decision I made was to make it my own by painting it Chateau Gray ASCP. I painted this with two coats. I made sure to let this cure for a day or two.
I knew it still was not the look I wanted and used a generous coat of Mocha Glaze that I purchased quite a while ago from Lowes. I wiped some of the excess off and began the drying process. But….
I went one step further and mixed my own glaze using Folk Art Pigment in Raw Umber and plain glaze from Lowes. I put on another generous coat and wiped off some of the excess again.
After letting this completely dry again, I lightly sanded the door making sure I left the edges and certain areas with the two-step glaze process.
Excuse the picture of myself taking this, YIKES!
BAM, I achieved the look I wanted.
I finished by adding a tin piece I found at Michael’s and added some golden dried Hydrangea with a tan ribbon. SUCCESS!! Don’t you love when that happens?
More things that have been going on will be shared soon. Enjoy your week!
