projects | louvered doors


I wanted something a little quirky and fun for this reading corner of a client’s den. I had a set of louvered doors pulled from another project and decided to play around with them to see what worked. First, I spray painted the doors very inconsistently with 3 different neutral colors of paint that I had on hand in my shop. You know how they start to spurt when the can is close to empty? I kind of like that spattered look, so I went with it. In between coats of spray paint, I actually squirted water on the doors to allow the paint to bubble and run. They needed a little cream, I thought, so I simply brushed on acrylic paint here and there… wherever I thought it was needed. After stenciling large numbers in various places on the doors, I was finished. Quirky and fun. Just what I was going for!
