{re}imagined Closet Doors

I wanted to give you a peek at our closet doors.  I painted them with Old White and have begun hand painting a French Graphic on them.  It is going much quicker than I thought, though still time consuming. 

I am not sure if the pictures do it justice, but they are turning out amazing!  I will distress them once I am done and then wax them.  What do you think?

First I traced the graphic with carbon paper behind it.  Yes, they still sell carbon paper, right by the only typewriter in Office Max. Winking smile

Here it is once I traced it.

Here I have begun filling in with my ultra-skinny paint brush.  Isn’t it looking so cool???

I know precious little of what it says, hopefully nothing to risqué.  (blouses and pantalons are obvious)

May God bless you and keep you!!

Handkerchiefs, ties, corsets, blouses would be like camisoles, and underwear

You should submit your finished project to the The Graphics Fairy when you're done!
