Playroom Door Transformation

So when we moved into our home I was less than satisfied with our playroom door.  It was lacking in detail and character so I was excited to have an easy fix with this new product "overlays."  
Have you heard of them?

Before                                                                                      After

So they are lightweight, decorative fretwork panels that come in several sizes and patterns.  I first saw them on Pinterest.  Recently I also saw a project done with them on Centsational Girl (click here to see that).   Anyway the look I chose is similar to what I just painted in our Master Bath toilet area (click here to see) but I wanted some depth to the door rather than just a painted on design.  The panels come white and after spray painting them with plastic primer I spray painted them grey then glued them on the door with a small tube of liquid nails. It was a VERY quick and easy Transformation.  I recommend you check out their site ( they have lots of fun ideas and pictures to see.

Finally I added our monogram to the middle of the top panel - you can find every letter in the alphabet at Hobby Lobby (they are almost always on sale for half price too!)

You may notice there has also been some trim work added to the walls - I'll show you that when it's all ready and put together!


  1. i just keep looking at all your trim project over and over. you have inspired several things in my little townhouse. your design is so beautiful.
