I am happy to say that our Antique Storm Door turned Closet Barn Door is complete! Yay! Join me in a group hand clap 🙂 A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was going to try Miss Mustard Seed’s White Wax. Well I did, and I am so pleased with how it turned out. It feels much softer, while maintaining the wood grain and bringing out some of the grooves and details in the frame.

I will share the process with you another day {it was really easy!} but for now here are a few shots of how it is looking in our room.

This wicker stand is on it’s way out of our room… I pushed it here to empty it and thought it was kind of cute 🙂 #mustrearrangeallthethings

I treated myself to these gorgeous pink tulips… They seemed such an odd thing to find at the grocery store this time of year- but I am not complaining. I love tulips!Antique Barn Door aged with Miss Mustard Seed White Wax-10Antique Barn Door aged with Miss Mustard Seed White Wax-8I left a good amount of wax in the corners, and really like how it draws just the tiniest bit of attention to the details. Here is the original door finish prior to stripping and then treating with white and clear wax…

And below is a side by side after I stripped the door and with the white wax.

I almost can’t believe how far this door has come. It has been a little by little transformation, but I am so happy to call it a wrap. Now that the door is lighter I think the matte black track is growing on me again.

Speaking of painting…. this lovely is in the awkward stage right now…

This is after a coat of flat white paint to “prime” the previously glossy finish…

I have decided on Miss Mustard Seed’s Grain Sack (I picked some up when I got the wax) Let’s just say I love it, but using milk paint has been a learning curve for this paint happy girl… Anyone else getting their paint on? Tonight I’ll be adding a second/third coat and trying not to binge watch Gilmore Girls…
