    Default Easy Interior Door Makeover

    I thought I would share with you how I brought new life to an old door and spent little to do it. Some of my friends who saw my original blog post wanted to know more about how I painted the door. I rewrote my post and thought some of you frugal friends might want to see it and/or give it a shot. I did a lot of research on a method, but couldn't find what I was looking for and had to figure it out by trial and error. I have since done 5 more doors. One pair (I did) in a stronger grain color and strokes look more like rough wood, but I really like them too. I found there was no way around getting new hardware though.

    I'd love to hear about any door makeovers any of you may have done!

    Paint? I have done a makeover on just about everything in my house at one time or another - but never an interior door !

    If you're going to ask people to visit your blog, you might want to remove the "invited readers only" restriction. I'd love to see the makeover, but not if I have to go through the hassle of requesting permission to view your blog.

    Edited to say: I see now that this was a very old post, so maybe that's why it's permission only now?

    I'm sorry, I turned the blog off some weeks ago as I wasn't planning to post to it anymore as I started a new one. I have reset the settings and you should be able to view it now.

    Thanks for letting me know, I had another "switch" to flip! It should be working now.

    Thank you for the nice comments. I am so compelled to make things and fix things. Creating for me is such a rewarding process--it's been a part of me since I was a little girl. I know it is not for everyone, but for those who persevere, it a wonderful way of restoring an old ugly door to something quite lovely at such little cost.
