Met Monday........plain doors no more!



Time for Metamorphosis Monday!
for hosting us on Mondays. Be sure and check out her great blog
and the other bloggers who are participating this week!

Before......
Plain boring old closet doors in our house.
But before they were this color they were all that wonderful 1980's really dark wood.
My DH took and painted all of them, big job.
And then........
After in progress.....
I went and detailed our master bedroom doors.
I have had them like this for some time.
Deciding if I like it or what else to do to it.
So this week I am going to finish them, this is just with the border or cameo done outline
and scraps of wallpaper centers.
I know it is not everyones cup of tea but I like it,our bedroom is very victorian fru fru right now.
I am lucky hubby is ok with that.
But once we redo our ceilings and flooring in here, that might change.
I am getting a desire to repaint the walls and all when we do that!

Wow, what a transformation! It looks beautiful!

Don't you just love it when all of the doors and baseboards are painted white. It makes everything look so clean and fresh.

I love what you did to the closet doors! So pretty.
It reminds me of a very old hotel we stayed in 'way back in 1979, in Germany. Our room had roses painted everywhere, from the closet doors to the toilet bowl and bidet! It was fabulous, and I never forgot it.
(Love those plates on your wall, too.)
Thanks for visiting my blog! :-)
