Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is starting out to be a great one.
These were my doors on my armoire. I have glazed them, chalk painted them and stained them. I just could not get the look I wanted with these stock doors that Mr. JCC used to make this beautiful armoire for me.
|After painting the doors with white chalk paint and sanding them. Mr. JCC then used a water base wood stain on them.|
|This was the look we got after he sanded the door when the stain dried. The white came through but I still felt it was just a little too dark.|
|So then we tried putting a lighter stain over the door and it started to take on the lighter cream color I wanted.|
|Now we are getting somewhere. After putting on the lighter stain colonial oak and sanding again we got the white and cream distressed look I was going for.|
Now for some awesome knobs!
|I had these old knobs so added them. I like that they are miss matched. Gives a little bling and personality to the doors.|
|Terry added some trim pieces to the doors to frame them and give them some design.|
|I like that the trim gives some texture to the doors.|
