Painting a Decorative Door
Spray a salvage yard door and then decorate to add a focal point to any room.
Looking for a décor statement in your home? Pick up an interesting old door at a salvage yard and use it to create a show-stopping focal point in any room. Doors are decorative in nature and vintage ones retain the artful architecture of days gone by. Paint artist and consultant Debbie Hayes found this decorative wood and glass door at a local salvage yard and sprayed it up for a holiday display.
