Door, Window whatever this thing was, all I could see is one frame with LOTS of character! I grabbed the skill saw and cut that middle thing right out.

I painted it, with a darker brown/black, some blue, and lots of a darker burnt orange. Sanded it, and put a clear coat on it.

I went to the home depot and got large pieces of particle board for all of my trashy endeavors. I thought I could handle putting my three HUGE pieces of wood in the car by my self, while my little Drewy laughed at me. I even turned down the help of a sweet gentleman walking by. I got this!.....NOT SO MUCH. I sure did become that damsel in distress. Whilst I got attacked by my rogue particle boards, two sweet home depot workers literally ran full speed at me to help. My wood in the car, a sketchy knot holding it in, my poor 5 year old boy in my 1 year old's car seat...but we got home without loosing it. My dad cut it all up for me and I went home to do what I do....Craft!

I modge podges old book pages to the board...of course I did!

Let it dry

I sketched out the image that I wanted on it, and began to paint it. If you don't feel comfortable with free-handing a piece of art, what works perfect on something like this are those vinyl wall stickers, you can get great ones for so cheap in any color on etsy.
(That's the look that i was going for)

this puppy is big too.... 5 feet by 3 feet- ish:)
