Old Door and Entry Way Reveal

I love old doors.  There are so many different things you can do with them and they instantly provide a home with rustic charm. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed an old door in the pic I posted of our entryway this weekend.  I decided to go ahead and give it a blog post because I love it that much and for those of you who love old doors as much as I do to learn about how I transformed mine.

I bought the before from Craigslist for $75.  This picture was taken after an hour or so taking out all the nails, screws, and chipping off the paint that was falling off.  I sanded it down really well, and then painted the entire door this cool teal color using homemade chalk paint.  After it dried, I went back and distressed it with another good sanding.  I used Maison Blanche dark wax to seal and give it a nice shine and smooth finish.

I then applied 3 coats of chalk paint to the window to make it a chalk surface. 

Here it is in now in our entry way.....

I think it was the perfect addition to complete my entry and makes the home peaceful and inviting.  I am obsessed and can't wait to write scriptures and verses of the day on the chalkboard :)

Anyone else obsessed with old doors?
