Barn Doors: Door #1

The door to the guest bath is done. Here's the before:

And here's the after.  Big improvement from plain white in my opinion.

A little faux woodgrain goes a long way.  Much richer and goes well with the rest of the room.  Anxious for the trim to go up so I can paint the jamb to match.
I added an architecural ornament for a little extra elegance.

Just a little somthin' pretty

The little deadbolt lock above the handle is from London and says "VACANT" or "ENGAGED" .  The English are so proper.

"Barn Doors" #2 comin' up!


  1. WOW! What a great looking make over for a door! It is perfect and I love it! Diana

  2. Such a great villa look :)

    Thank you for coming by for a visit, I so was on your same thought path with this piece. I looked to see if it would work in the kitchen, and so wished it was my new center island instead of the one that is there in place and not movable.

    Endless idea's run through my head, and you as an artist I am sure you do the same thing when you paint and create.

    see you soon beautiful artist.

  3. Tamra gorgeous, what paint are you using on the walls!?

    Art by Karena

  4. Karena, it's actually a metallic plaster. I've sent you an email with more info.

  5. Oh thank you for putting me on your side bar!

    AND, Pink Martini is one of my Pandora fav's too!!

    Can't wait to see your barn look! I have a barnish faux that I do - I can't WAIT to see yours!

  6. you're always up to something.
    wishn' we were neighbors!
