Just for fun!

This is a fun little project I did to cover a big empty space above the fireplace. The doors aren't real...they're just screwed right on the wall.

Using some kind of hammered wood, I just painted it, sanded it down a lot, and then used miniwax dark walnut stain on top.  This gave it the weather worn look I was hoping for.  The stain really made all the texture in the wood show.  The big gate hinges I found at Lowe's, and viola! I love it! 

Behind the door I did venitian plaster (also from Lowes), and I'm thinking about doing the rest of the room in a different color plaster.

  1. SO amazing. I seriously love that idea! I wonder if all those that have that gaping niche for a t.v. would reconsider after seeing this, or possibly make the doors usable to hide the media eye sore. Brilliant idea! XoXo

  2. Looks Great! I love how your distressing turned out.
