bedroom door restored

By in Master Bedroom



My bedroom door has received it’s face-lift and I’m thrilled! I got it rehung this past week and I just need to shave a little off the right side so it doesn’t stick when it closes. I think it was the combination of painting and my rehanging it that made it stick, but it should be an easy fix. The hardware came out great once I used the crock pot method to get the paint off and gave it a coating of Rustoleum Reust Reformer. I can tell you one thing, I really hate working with all those tiny little screws that hold all the hardware together!

A little secret to tell you- I wasn’t going to do the hinges originally. They had about 10 coats of paint on them and it seemed like too much of a pain to dig the paint off to get at the screws, then take the door down, get the paint off them etc. But it kept nagging at me so finally I got to work and got them off and I’m so glad I did. It really makes the door look complete!
