Covering Pegboard with Doors

I shared on FB that I have been painting up a storm.

I like to start as many projects as possible and complete most.

Since everything is in some stage besides finished, I jumped to some other projects that have been on my list.

Since my beloved Barn Door sold…

all you can see is that awful pegboard.  Oh how I loath the pegboard.  A While ago, I convinced Daughter #2 and her friend that it would be big fun to Mod Podge.  When that didn’t fly, I bribed them with $.

They covered roller shades with sheet music for me.  They were placed on the right side of my booth.

Well, the girls are too busy so I busted out the Mod Podge and got busy.  Yes, I like the look but there was no big fun had by me.

I got bored, so I decided to revamp three old, solid wood, 5-panel doors.

Aren’t they pretty?

Prettier now with a turquoise oops paint.

For whatever reason, the true color is not coming through in my photos.  So I dragged one outside.  Let me tell you, these suckers are heavy!

I am debating whether to rough them up a bit.  I’m living with them until tomorrow, when I will ultimately decide.

All three will arrive in the shop by Saturday.  I hope to cover the pegboard or hinge them together and block my neighbor’s crap stuff from view.

They will be available for purchase.  Why would you purchase a door?

  • Decorate a blank space in a room
  • Use one as a headboard and hang horizontally.
  • Use all three as a headboard and add height, texture and dimension to your bedroom.
  • Of course if the size is right, you can use it for its intended purpose.
  • A desk
  • A table

Ironically, Miss Mustard Seed did a post on doors.  For inspiration – check it out here.

Enjoy the sunshine!

Ah, Shannon, Mod Podge offers a free buzz....that's my favorite part of decoupaging! LOL

LOVE those doors! Seems like doors sell well at Heritage too!

And I'm with ya on the pegboard, I really dislike it!
