In my efforts to find the ever so hard to locate Old Raggedy Door with chipped paint-different shades of color and the worn marks of life , I have decided to try to make my own. Is that possible-well not really, but I'm going to give it a try.
Starting with a $25 Home Depot plain white paneled door-
Painted it black-then brown with spray paint, then painted it black again with a brush all over nice and think- Letting dry for a whole day (not usual for me to wait that long) Then painted the door a shade of yellow- i found in the oops section for 50 cents.
After i painted the yellow and it dried- i used the sander and roughed up all the edges-crevices that i could, allowing the shades of black and brown to show through.
Lastly i added some $2.00 hinges- and a door knob all that i painted black and used the sander on to give a more worn look- Not Exactly an Old Door-but not so bad- with my yellow walls- kind of hard to tell. But here is a close up where you can see the edges that kind of look old-and worn. Truth is the reason we all love the old doors & vintage furniture is that it is made so well, with such detail and character & with real wood. This knew door just isn't going to chip or age the same, because it isn't made of wood- But it will work for a background piece in the shoppe.
