I didn't contribute much to the kitchen island beyond some design ideas and help with lifting. My summer contribution to the renovations is this door.
The rustic look is intentional. The work involved stripping off most, but not all of the paint, a light sanding, followed by two coats of tung oil and one coat of paste wax.
I'm pretty chuffed by how it turned out.
Ooh, very nice. Did you do the stained glass, too? I took a stained glass course years ago and it was a lot of fun.
I'm guessing you read this blog:
No, the stained glass is not me. I picked this door up and several windows via Craigslist from a heritage house someone was renovating.
Thanks for the blog tip! I will check it out.
