Birch headboad....yes please!!!

This big daddy door is about to become a painting...great for a headboard or behind a couch because this puppy is massive! And heavy...might have thrown my back out carrying it up my stairs;)
I had to take all that screen out,sand it down a bit, then cut that middle piece out. I cut a large board to go inside of the door. I painted it with a blue-ish gray green color and put a few book pages on it. Then let it dry.

Covered it all in my favorite.....modge podge!

I painted the door in an eggshell white.

Then...I painted some trees on it in white. And I'm telling do not have to be a painter to do a painting like this one....just try!!!!

I let that dry, screwed it into the frame, and added some streaks of gray-ish brown with a dry brush into the white trees. Then covered it all in a matte clear spray finish. Added a double 100 lb holding wire on the back.
To take these pictures I put the painting over our bed witch is a cal king so it shows just how big this thing is!


I added just one more fun Christmas decoration to the house! I found this beat up ladder at my trash pile! I sanded it. Had to nail a couple pieces back together, and skill saw some really destroyed parts off the end....but I love the fun result!!!
