Project Show-and-Tell: Interior Door Decoupaged with Vintage Papers

November 13th, 2012 | by Julie Finn

What do you do with a ratty old interior door, one that sports at least three different layers of peeling paint but that is otherwise a solid ole' boy, one that you would like to look a lot less crappy but that you do NOT want to spend a weekend taking off its hinges, dragging outside, sanding, repainting, dragging back inside, and screwing back on its hinges? Slap yet another layer of paint on it, that's what! Oh, and cover the center panels with a decoupage consisting of vintage wallpaper samples, stash scrapbook paper, and nautical-themed sheet music. Yes, it's a little more on the "shabby chic" side than I usually walk, but the point is that my solid-yet-ugly bathroom door now looks a whole lot nicer, and instead of a long weekend and some muscle power to make it happen, it only took a couple of hours, some stash supplies, and plenty of Mod Podge
