Here is the finished product :)
I have always wanted a wood door but haven't had the opportunity to get one and I'm not willing to spend the money on one! (teachers know that feeling) So I decided to try and paint my door to look like wood! When I told my husband, he wasn't for it 100% because he had in his mind... HOW... Don't get me wrong, I had doubts about it too but my way of thinking was if it looks bad... paint over it white!
Here is what my metal door looked like to begin with...It was a weird shade of BLUE.
Then the painting began.
First, I primed the door (tinted the base color)
Painted the door a base color (SW Tatami Tan)
Then I started taping and painting the wood grain color
(SW Fiery Brown)
I use 100% acrylic latex paint!
