I recently painted my pantry door. You can read about it here. It looked like this originally.
Then I painted it in Tidewater by Sherwin Williams…who hasn’t caught aqua fever after all!?
I thought that was going to be the magic I was looking for and it was for a short while. It was better, but still felt unfinished and not quite us. Yesterday, on a bit of a whim, I decided to test a small area with some General Finishes glaze in VanDyke Brown. Yeah, the test turned into a full door refinish at 10:00 at night. I posted a few pictures online to get some feedback and for the most part, it was all positive so I decided to commit! If you notice, I also painted the trin around the door. Originally I’d left it white, but it felt really disconnected. The painted and glazed trim grounded the door and made it look like it had always been that way and not at all an after thought.
I bit the bullet and finished ‘er up. This is a close up of the finish complete with fly specking. There are so many dang flies here in NC, and the one flying around my head was my inspiration and reason for adding the fly specks, lol. Not really.
…and here’s the new, made to look old, aqua panty door!!
I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a message below and of course, if you have any questions, ask away. I will be sharing a tutorial on how to achieve this look, so stayed tuned for that! If you love this makeover, please be sure to share below. Thanks!
