New Charcoal Gray Doors!

You may recall that I have recently given my master bath a face lift, including painting the vanity, framing the mirror and adding new lighting. Even after all that, I felt like it was still missing some spunk and since my blog is entitled Suburban Spunk after all, I felt compelled to do something bold.

So with leftover paint from the vanity (Better Homes & Gardens Charcoal Sketch in semi-gloss), I turned this-






















into this-



































After I sanded the doors down with medium-grit sandpaper, I painted three coats of the Charcoal Sketch paint color. It looks black in pictures but is actually a dark gray. Once dry, I did a coat of clear lacquer for extra protection and for high sheen.

Here's a close-up (the high-sheen makes it a bit hard to photograph)-




































I love how luxe they look. It definitely helps bring a bit more spunk to the space!
I got LOTS of fun projects done over the long weekend:) Why can't every weekend by 3 days!?!? :) Oh well, at least it's a short week! best, S
