Orange and Gray Painted 5 Paneled Door (Other side of the Barn door)

Heyyyyy!! How are u, enjoying the summer?

Next couple of weeks going to be crazy busy as I have loads and loads of projects lined up. Need to finish quite a few things before hubby's few classmates and their families joins us for couple of weeks.

Every story has the other side and so does our barn door ( faux panel painted door). Other side of door is fully visible from the bath room. I wanted it to be pretty and some thing that goes with gray and orange color scheme.



Since we couldn't find the doors that big (93" tall, 38" wide) and in the price we like, we decided to build. All that we needed was one sheet of plywood.



We got the cuts needed from the home depot, Along with 1 sheet, we used some left over wood from our other projects.


After Pre-stain wood conditioner. Conditioner helps the wood to absorb the stain evenly.


After Gray stain.This was after first round. I did 3 rounds to achieve the color I was looking for.


For Orange, I mixed my own stain using the orange acrylic and water.


Sealed with few (3) coats polyurethane.


I simply love the grain that shows up thru the wood. I was planning to use this as the other side instead of the faux panel painted one. But hubby fell in love with faux panel and wanted it to be in the bedroom side.

Before leaving, here is both the sides next to each other.
