Door, deux...

Back in mid-January, I posted about a project Katie and I started involving an old oak door. It’s been a while since I’ve updated you all and we’ve finished it, so would you all like to see the result?

Katie used a stripping compound on one side of the door but it was a goopy mess.

So we used chisels and scrapers on the opposite side and liked it better so Katie sampled some paint.

I bolted on a frame of 2x4s with an angle edged board at one end as a hanger of sorts. Near the right long edge is the crown moulding for the top.

Cutting that angle was a PitA that required a couple different saws and chisels to split them.

Katie painted one coat of chalk paint in buttercream and then a top coat of dark blue chalk paint.

A weird cut I had to make for a support board.

The door, now headboard, in place in our bedroom.

What do you think? Worth the effort?
