|During the Day|
To keep myself busy in the meantime, I decided to tackle the door issue. I want a Majestic Mansion door connecting the Library to the Music Room. But I kept circling like a buzzard over the stain issue: Library is gold and mahogany; Music Room is black, cream, and gold. No where in either room is there New Walnut stain like the door.
So I bugged and begged my friend, Wilson, at Dollhouse Linens and More (Dollhouse Linens And More) for any hints and tips he could give me about changing an already stained/finished piece to a different stain or paint. He does it often and his results are incredible: but most of his things are amazing because he is an artist. I'm just a hobbyist who can't draw a straight line even with a ruler. Luckily for me, Wilson is sweet and provided me with a few tips, but most importantly, he provided me with the inspiration and a belief that I could do it!
I sanded the door as best I could to remove the old glaze and some of the stain.
|Library Side of door needs to be Mahogany|
|Music Room Side needs to be Cream|
|Still needed another coat or two before it was finally done|
|Finally matched close enough that I'm going with it!|
