Just recently, I was looking for an antique door to replace the plain white door I have leading to my pantry. I couldn’t find any with those exact measurements so I decided I was going to try making my new door look old using some Annie Sloan chalk paint.
This is what the door originally looked like.
First, I painted the entire door using Annie Sloan Florence. It’s an aqua blue color.
I let that coat dry and finished off the painting with some Annie Sloan Wrought Iron. With this color, I put a small amount onto my paint brush and applied it only to certain areas of the door to give it an old, weathered look.
I let that dry then used a coat of the Annie Sloan clear wax. This wasn’t quite glossy enough for my liking so I added a coat of Minwax polycrylic clear semi-gloss.
The molding around the door was white and I didn’t like that contrast so I used some dark brown gel wax to stain it. It took a few coats but I just kept adding stain until I got it like I wanted it.
Here’s what my door looks like now! What do you think?
