Here it is in its raw, unfinished state.
Does this look like a door? Well, it is. I bought a flat panel 36" luan slab door from Home Depot for 25.00. Luan is very light weight as compared to solid wood, or plywood. That is how I remedied my weight issue. Now, the rest was really simple.
I glued and tacked decorative mouldings onto the door, built up a crown and base then glued the mirror into place. That Simple!
Then the fun part began. I used Annie Sloan Chalk paint to finish the trumeau with the French Linen as the base coat, then dry brushing Pure White and Paris Grey. I then used combinations of clear and dark wax and kept dry brushing and waxing until I had the look I wanted. Below is the finished product.
Now, this is a fairly simple design and as trumeau lovers know, they can get very ornate and fancy. Maybe I will try that next time.
Remember ~ Delight the Eye.......Nurture the Soul.
Bye for now,
