Giving New Life to an Old Door

One of my clients runs the High Horizons coffee shop at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.  It is located in the back at the stadium jumping complex which is a very busy place!  She brought an old door that came from a house that was built in the 1800s and asked if I could paint it a butter yellow with the panels being chalk board paint so they could use it to advertise their specials.  She also asked if I could paint a pot of geraniums with ivy at the bottom on both sides.  I have done flowers in the past, so I said I would give it a try.

Of course, there is always plenty of priming work to do, such as sanding down the old chalk board paint that was on one side, and removing the hardware which needed cleaning due to not having been removed before, then applying primer.

I then painted the geraniums and ivy on both sides which completed the door.  Thank you for viewing this rejuvenation project!
