An Old Door Design

I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars.

 

The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf.

I replaced the glass with bead board… it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint… First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint.

I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than brown and the glaze was the perfect color.

Here is the finished product. I will probably add baskets to the top and inside the crates once it is in place. I think it will go beautifully in the breakfast nook of my farmhouse inspired kitchen
