Pine Door to be thrown away I turned into a head board by adding trim and crown modling to the top. I painted it with a paint close to black called stealth jet from Behr and then wiped on a brown glaze. The most difficult part was removing all of the layers of caked on paint!

Very Cool! My wife was wanting me to do something similar but I just couldn’t find the right door. She finally gave up on me and bought a head board.

Thats a very nice use for a nice old door, I like it alot. Alas, my better half would never let me hear the end of the fact that one panel is wider at one end than the other : ) she is a symetrical fanatic.

I like the finish and understand just how hard re-finishing can be. Well done.
