Faux Barnwood Pantry Doors:

After I installed the Decorative Hardware to my Garage Door, I was left with 1 remaining kit.

I've been wanting to paint my pantry doors for awhile now, but it wasn't until I bought the hardware, that I knew what exactly it was that I wanted to do.


Just look how pitiful this is?

I applied 3 different types of paint to achieve this look...

I used an Interior Glidden paint called TILLED SOIL for the base coat.  Then I brushed on some black chalkboard paint.  I could have just used regular black paint, but chalkboard paint is what I had on hand.  For the final coat, I used
Martha Living specialty finish called HACIENDA.  For the final step, I distressed the edges a bit.

(Just a side note, the first 2 pictures below were taken with my phone...that's why the paint looks neon green.  ha ha)

I didn't worry about the edging, because I'm re-painting the walls anyways...

After the 3rd coat, I put on the Carriage Door Hardware.

My kitchen has a country, shabby chic, farmhouse look to it, so the faux Barn doors go perfectly! =)
