Faux wooden door

commpleted faux panels

Step by step instructions showing you how to make a faux wooden door from old plain interior doors.

Upcycle have moved into their new premises and we have decided we really do not like the look of our new door.

We could just paint it a plain colour and get done but that’s just not who we are!! So let’s see what we can come up with.

Firstly we decided that we need to keep it rather neutral and not too over the top as we cannot take away from the entrance of the studio.

The entrance will be our main display area so keeping that as neutral as possible will be a help to the actual products on the display stand.

After much deliberation it was decided that using paint techniques is such an easy as simple way to change the entire look and feel of the door.

This is a fun craft to do, children will love getting their hands messy with this one, as well as being fun to make, it is eco-friendly and a fun Upcycling project for kids to learn from.
Kids could also spend the day collecting 'scrap' ice-cream sticks and clean their environment, but do remember to wash them off properly after collecting them, (the sticks, as well as your kid's hands). They cost next to nothing and oftentimes they come with a cold treat on the end.

It is also a great Mother's Day craft for kids to make. It is a craft suitable for four year olds and up. Follow our easy step by step instructions to make your own recycled bread holder.
