About six months ago we bought a set of antique parlor pocket doors. We had big plans for them but things didn’t work out the way we anticipated and we couldn’t use them as we had hoped. As it turns out the niche in the guest bedroom has always bothered me….it always felt as though it needed something more. The old doors were the perfect solution but needed a little tweaking in order to work. So, the handyman took the doors apart, cut part of the panels off, and re-assembled them. It turned out to be more than a little tweaking but it was well worth it!!!!
They were painted two colors when we bought them, green and tan…….
The original finish was sooooooo fabulous…..it had wonderful crazing and chipping! However there was that issue with the green. We couldn’t have two toned doors so I had to paint over them…….
A couple coats of paint later:
A little aging was added next to blend the doors with the trim and bring back the detail of the crazing and chippy paint:
Of course this led to new bed linens and a new skirt for the round table.
You know, the old domino effect……
Have a great week my friends!!!!
