These pictures are out of the order of when I did the projects- I did these over the past weekend and it is just too cool that I couldn't wait to share them! (actually it was 2 weekends ago now, my internet access conked out while I was trying to do this post originally, aarrgghhh! so I gave up)
I knew I wanted to faux wood grain the interior doors right from the beginning. I've had the wood grain tool since I was a teenager, but never used it because I didn't know how. Enter the wonderful world of you-tube! I watched a few videos (only one was really helpful) and said "wow! That looks really easy!" And it was!
|You put a coat of your glazing mix on the door with a roller, then drag the tool through it using a light rocking motion. I did the door in sections because the medium will dry too fast. It is a very fast process!|
|This is the door to the utility room on the distillery side. I thought it would be a good practice one. I am really happy with it!|
|This is the fire door between the tasting room and the distillery, we had to put it in due to code regulations.|
|This is the entrance door to the tasting room.|
|I printed these hinge designs from the internet. We didn't want to spend a ton of money on fake hinges for six doors ( one needed them for both sides!), so I figured I could stencil them on.|
|Handy dandy stencil cutter.....it melts the stencil material to cut it.|
|Decide where you want a hinge...|
|Be a contortionist to get in the weird spots...no wonder my hips and shoulders hurt!|
So far this has been one of the most fun projects that I have done. It gives a great effect without spending a ton of money, and it was a fairly fast process.
