First I should start by saying we got a new door in our back entry (insert applause here). ¬†It’s been 2 years in the making and we finally just got it in before the snow flies. ¬†The reason we wanted a new door was because the old one was original to the house and it was wood, which had some rot on it. ¬†The seal wasn’t good anymore and cold air would come streaming in. ¬†And lastly, because the last one had no windows and I was really trying to brighten up this back corner a bit!

This is the best picture I could find, it was just a solid wood paneled door.

and here it is from the outside..,the one I just finally painted black….oh well, it lasted for a few months;)

So, Ry got to work taking out the old door…

We had bought this door a year ago when they were having a sale at Menards. ¬†It’s just been sitting in the shed since then;) ¬†I think it cost us around $150 at the time.

but unfortunately those are way out of our budget.  So, the stock door it was.

Then the other day I was blog reading and came across this door on Our Vintage Home Love.

I was smitten. ¬†She took her ordinary door and transformed it into a faux wood original. ¬†That’s when I knew this is what I was going to try. ¬†The only bugger was that she didn’t really give step by step directions. ¬†Her directions were..

I would like to be able to tell you the colors I used but I just mixed a bunch of colors from my paint stash and then rubbed an antiquing glaze over the entire door.  The antiquing glaze I bought at Lowes.  I just dabbed and rubbed off until I had the look I wanted.  The colors included a leather brown color, a chocolate color and a gold and a little black.

So, with that, I was on a mission.  And on my own.  I headed to Menards and grabbed sample sizes of colors that I thought were close tot he ones she mentioned.  This is what I ended up with..

They are dutch boy paints that I got mixed in the small samples sizes.  I think they were about $2 each.

I then searched everywhere for an antique glaze and came up with NOTHING! ¬†Menards didn’t have anything, I checked the lowes and home depot website and couldn’t find anything, and then I finally came across this I believe on Amazon.

it was the closest I could come to for an antique glaze. ¬†I believe this was about $12?? ¬†So I figured if it didn’t work, I wasn’t out too much.

So, now onto the challenge. ¬†I was a little nervous to get started but first opened up all of my paints…

I also added in my chalkboard paint for the black, cause that’s all I had. ¬†So if you don’t have black you’ll want to get some of that as well.

Then I used the same for 1 last update 2020/07/06 brush the whole time and started layering on…starting with the lightest brown and some darker browns.Then I used the same brush the whole time and started layering on…starting with the lightest brown and some darker browns.

Then I’d add a little bit of the gold for highlightening and dimension…

I would just keep on layering and adding and layering and adding until I covered the whole door and was pleased with the look.

It looks a little more terd brown in this pic than it actually was:)  But after I got this part the 1 last update 2020/07/06 done, I added some black around the edges to give it a deeper look and dimension.It looks a little more terd brown in this pic than it actually was:)  But after I got this part done, I added some black around the edges to give it a deeper look and dimension.

I would just put about this much on the outside of the panels or edges of the door and then paint it in to blend well. ¬†And here’s what it looked like after that step.

the 1 last update 2020/07/06

At first I didn’t paint the grid, but after assessing it I realized it made it look a bit cheaper with a white grid, and did the same process on that as well.

Quite honestly, I was pleased with the results with just paint. ¬†But at this point my glaze was in the mail so I thought I’d still try to see what that did to the final effect.

When my glaze arrived I brushed it on and wiped it off like a stain. ¬†Although it didnt’ do a ton, it did help to blend everything just a bit more. ¬†It’s up to you whether you would want to spend the extra $12 on that or not. ¬†Here are pictures of the door completed, glaze and all..

I’m pretty sure I’ll be painting the outside of the doors to match next spring. ¬†That’s a project that will have to wait though as it’s a little for 1 last update 2020/07/06 too cold out there to do it now:)I’m pretty sure I’ll be painting the outside of the doors to match next spring. ¬†That’s a project that will have to wait though as it’s a little too cold out there to do it now:)
