Tin Door Done!

 Okay, so I have to share my new tin door, really...I HAVE too!  I should start out with I designed and painted it only, my local neighborhood handyman assembled it.  I don't really own the power tools to do it myself, that is right now...the hubby has given permission to start shopping craigslist after the holidays. 

 Here is before picture, I know I should have actually taken pics of the different steps involved in making the door, but I didn't.  Let's face it, none of you are

Ta Da, the after!  Doesn't it look great?  Thanks.  I got a great deal on the ceiling tin too, and I painted in my new favorite Rustoleum color, Colonial Red.  It's the perfect shade of red.

Okay, so my photography skills are lacking, but here's another angle.  You can't tell from the photos, but I painted the frame Rustoleum Heirloom White and glazed it with Ralph Lauren Tobacco.  I'm crazy about spray paint. 

This door isn't just for Christmas either, this is it's new home, and won't be moving anytime soon.  Not to say it will never move, cause let's face it, I like to change things up.  A LOT!

I had to throw in for fun the new wrapping paper I bought this year.  LOVE it!  Damask, who would have though?  You can get it at....wait for it....HOBBY LOBBY!  Doh, like my fave store!

Close up.  Please excuse the table top in the background.  I'm getting ready to stain it, it's currently living in my kitchen.  I will blog all about it when it's done, so I'm off to stain!

Thanks for checking in with me today!  Happy Holidays.
