I wiped the doors clean with soap and water. Then taped everything off.

Here comes the scary part and honestly I was freakin our a bit 😬
I chalk painted the doors a rhubarb color, for texture. The chalk paint dries quick..

So, I started staining the doors. I used a dark walnut. The stain takes a few days to dry.

I then chalk painted around the windows and used a black color.
I also used a spar uerathane for the final coat.. it made the doors super shiny.
