4 Panel Old Door Headboard - Dark Faux Finish


This Customer requested a particularly dark faux finish. The door originally was a fleshy color, (please see the last pic) but after a process of layering we came up with one of my favorite end results.
Be patient but also have a goal in mind of what you want it to look like when you're done.
The legs, sides and crown molding shelf were then painted Dover White.

    I appreciate the effort. The summer's end is my deadline for this project because my store reopens after Labor Day. As you well know, business takes up all of our waking hours as well as some of the sleeping ones. Creators never sleep, they only close their eyes! :). (That's my next header for my website!)
