Ugly Slab Door Transformed With a Mid Century Modern Feel


I have 4 doors that are ugly brown slab doors that I've been wanting to paint for some time. I recently went to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore to browse and came across 4 used wooden window mullions. That is when inspiration struck. I scored 4 mullions for $10 I have 4 of the slab doors that need an uplift.

I took the doors off and glued the mullion to the door. Definitely looking better I think
Painted with a white semi gloss paint. I love the mid century feel!
I can't wait to finish the rest!

      I think that would look great. I would use the kind with the little gold veins in them,maybe. That would look great.
