front doors

These front doors just needed a little touch to make them come alive. They were finished off with just a clear urethane and needed something to give them a little character. The handles are an anitque bronze so we aged the wood.

To do this I used black oil paint and applied so it that the paint would be in the crevices around the molding as you can see. Then I carefully applied the black over the entire door and wiped it off in a way to leave some and 'age' all the surfaces.
