In 2012, when I started the journey of hand-making our home furnishings and decor, I had attempted to salvage, repair, and refinish my daughter's existing bedroom door. There were cracks in the door that I tried to smooth out with sanding and darker stain.
Now, 4 years later, I was inspired to add more personality to my daughter's bedroom by painting a lace inspired mural on her door. It reminds me of zentangles, mandalas, and doodles on paper, but with such high contrast, and at a larger scale, this design has given my daughter's room a bold new look that I hope will coordinate with my other plans for designing her space. :)
