I had two doors. I was going to use them to make a book shelf, using one door for the back of the shelf, and the other door ripped vertically for the two sides. Cathy convinced me that it would be too heavy that way. That’s what I like about what I do, you can usually change your mind, because it’s your own design.
This door had so many layers of paint that it took me forever to get all the paint off. I used a stripper. I have yet to find a stripper that I think works well. I don’t think there is one out there that works for my impatient self. The one I used only removes one layer of paint at a time. I’m surprised I didn’t give up on this door and the one I made into a book shelf.
I do not have pictures of the stripped door. I suppose I was too sick of working on it. This side has a couple of coats of pink primer and a couple of coats of red oops paint. At this point I decide not to use it for the book shelf. I mulled it over for a couple of days before I decided for sure what I wanted to do.
This is how I design stuff. I have the headboard and foot board propped up and the mattress sitting on some paint cans. These are the things you have to do when you work alone. Isn’t that pink primer sweet? hehehe Reminds me of Pepto Bismol.
You can check out my post Toddler Bed for the details and particulars on how I put all this together.
