Wardrobe Doors Makeover

Hey Guys,

Work is under way in Elizabeth's room. The walls are now white. Elizabeth really wanted to have a green room, but since I discovered how much brighter the house is with white walls I nixed that idea.


Every time I have done the kids area I have always gone a little bit crazy. For Elizabeth what I really wanted was a room that would make her happy now but could also be used throughout the teen years. So I painted over the old doors that were installed in the 70's


They received a much needed facelift with Canterbury Blue Cottage Green Chalk Paint 



DIY Delight or Disaster? Simple, easy and I appeased my green loving girl with painting the doors, Delight!

Since we are sort of gong with a cottage, simple pretty room, I decided not to replace the worn brass pulls, I was going to but then I decided after painting that I did actually like them.

Thanks for reading,

 Mel xo

  1. Love the color ! Cheri's closet doors were also in the mix for today, but it needs another coat of paint before I {well, Roy!} can make the changes I want.

  4. Looks great Mel. I would never have thought to paint a bedroom door with chalk paint. Can't wait to see what you've done with the room.

  6. I think that's a great way to get E her green, but keep the rooms nice and clean with white paint. I can't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeves. :)

  7. Good call! I've been thinking about painting doors... a smaller way to add color than painting a whole wall. Lookin good Mel :-)

  8. I think the vintage knobs are perfect with the color and it's a nice compromise to painting the whole room with color. Very pretty, looking forward to seeing more!

  12. Love it Mel! Of course you know green is still my favorite color and I say you can never go wrong with it. I am seeing brass is making a comeback, so Elizabeth will be right in style!

  15. You will never go wrong with a soft green and white! Nice compromise on where to add the green. I'm catching up reading backwards so I already know you added green knobs to the desk.
