First let me just say, if I would of known that in less time that it took me to make King Ranch Chicken tonight, I could have a distressed door I would of done this a long time ago!
When we were first rebuilding our house after the fire we knew the style we wanted, however, when you have a crappy insurance company that takes OVER SIX MONTHS to pay you for your house and you have to have to pay to build a house out of pocket, you cut corners. And unfortunately, that meant I was NOT getting the vintage/ distressed super awesome front door that I would of loved.
I couldn't find a picture of our exact door, but here is basically what we have:
I picked these paints up from the craft section at Walmart for .50ea! And the brush was a whole $1!
Five minutes in- I realized i never took a before picture so I snapped this:
I also realized was wearing my favorite white capris so I took my pants off....
right in the middle of the living room.
Raigen was curious as to why I was pants-less.
Rilyn asked if it was something I learned from Pinterest.
And CJ was excited, he said, "dang mom, I didn't know you loved camo so much you wanted to paint our door camo!"
And .... the finished product:
I love it!
And it matches perfectly with our living room:
