Chalk Board with Benefits

I love visiting my local wood recycling shop and when I saw this old door I immediately saw what I could do with it. I love the way the wood was damaged and battered and wanted to accentuate that.  I used GF Antique Cherry Wood Stain after sanding it lightly. I then rubbed a candle all over and painted a custom mix of GF Patina Green, GF Coastal Blue and GF Halcyon Blue here and there adding accents of GF Snow White and GF Holiday Red.  I then scraped the candle wax off and sanded again. 

The central part was painted with Rustins Chalkboard Paint and it was finished off with Autentico Copper Wax.  I added a key holder and a string with pegs for photo's and bits of paper/receipts
