For a very long time, I’ve been wanting to do murals on the ugly brown doors that are in our hallway.
You’ve seen these. You might even have them in your house. They work great, but there isn’t much to them in terms of style or beauty. And every time I go past them, I think “ick.”
You just can’t think that when you’re in your own home. LOL So when I did the mural on the bedroom closet doors, I instantly thought about doing these next. In the last couple of weeks, we’ve been social distancing and I’ve been looking at these doors more and more.
I sketched out an initial idea.
First, paint and primer.
Even that looks so much better. But I can’t leave them white. I mean, sheesh… So next up, some coloring blocking.
A good start. Let’s keep going.
You’ll notice I used the same colors that I used in my other closet mural. That’s because I had them! LOL! (I always say, use what you have first.) For that matter, the primer base was also from that closet mural. (Paint goes a long way, ya’ll.)
But now it’s time to add some more color. I used regular acrylic craft paint for this. Nothing fancy.
Color makes me happy. How about you?
Once the color blocking was complete, I added line work.
And viola! Finished.
My favorite part? The little pink doggie on the bottom.
