Begin with your wood round I went with a 12″ for my door. I cut my own rounds out of cheap pine, but 18″ rounds can be purchased at Lowes. Shake and stir your first color of paint, I am beginning with Vanilla Frosting. This will be the color that comes through once distressed.
Apply an even layer of paint all over your round. I chose to paint the back side of my round as well because my front door has windows and I wanted the back to look finished from the inside.
Allow this coat to fully dry before moving on to the next step.
Once dry, apply the bar to the areas you would like your base color to show through. This will allow you to easily take off the top color and allow the bottom color to shine through.
Now you can apply your top color! Be sure to shake and stir your paint just as you did with the first color. For this coat I’m using the color, Peacoat.
Allow this coat to dry before distressing! Once your top color is dry you can lightly distress the areas you applied the Beeswax Distressing Bar using a fine grit sandpaper.
When you are satisfied with your distressing, give your round a quick wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
Now it’s time to apply your stencil. If you are feeling creative you could also give hand painting a go. Make sure your stencil is pressed down so you don’t have any bleed through. Using a foam brush or roller apply Vanilla Frosting, or whichever color you are choosing for your font over your stencil. Allow for the paint to dry before removing the stencil.
Now that you’re all finished with the painting parts, you can seal it with a coat of Country Chic Paint’s Clear Coat for durability as it will be outside.
Allow your Top Coat to fully dry before applying your embellishments. Attach the two eye hooks to the back of the round close to the top of the round (about a ¼ inch down from the top). This will prevent the round from tipping forward.
I picked up my ribbons and burlap just at the Dollar Store, you could even do faux flowers. Fasten your burlap through the eye hooks and apply a small bead of hot glue to secure. Glue your bow to the front of the piece and it is ready to hang!
These can be customized for seasons, holidays, or events super cute way to liven up your door! Watch Tonia demonstrate this project:
