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.
The finished, painted door with moulding.
A weird cut I had to make for a support board.
A detail shot of some of the distressing Katie did to the painted door.
The hanger rack mounted on our bedroom wall.
The inset lag screw I used on the hanger.
The door, now headboard, in place in our bedroom.
What do you think? Worth the effort?
