Painted Panel Door & Booth Progress

I got a bi-fold panel door from my friend, Sue, to use in my booth as a corner backdrop.  It was white and I knew I was going to paint it to stand out from the white walls in my booth.  It is upside down in this picture because I need to remove the thigamajig from the bottom that catches on a track.

I wanted to do two colors on it.  I couldn’t find any pictures on Pinterest or Google images to get some idea of how I wanted to go about it.  So, I wound up winging it!  I painted the inset panels first with a La Craie paint sample I bought from Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage in Debutante.

I did the outer portion of the door in a black satin paint I already had.

Then I added some stencils.  I did a No. 51 for my booth number in white.

And here it is in place in my booth.

I really like the way it turned out.  I also picked up two shutters and I just painted them black.  They will be going up on either side of the entrance to my booth {under the pink tissue paper flowers}.   Other additions I made were the two tissue paper flowers at the entrance and a black flower ball {over the chalkboard with my booth name and number}, along with a few items to sell and moving things around a little.

I did hit an estate sale and a couple of yard sales two days in a row and found a couple of pieces of furniture.  The bad news is I kept a bench I found for myself, but the good news is that the table it is replacing in the sunroom will be going to the booth instead. I should have the items that need paint done and ready to go for the beginning of next week, so I’ll share those with you soon.

That bi-fold door looks so great painted! It really sets your mannequin off!

Oh, I'm sure I'd have tons of trouble actually selling stuff I find. But the good thing is that once you're tired of it, it has a place to go. I have so much stuff I could just give you!

Little Miss Maggie said...

This is a great idea, Kathy, and I love that your space number is on there too.
