Updating an Old Toilet Door

 

There was a huge paint chip on this door that needs to be addressed. There were a lot of ideas came to my mind in updating an old toilet door. I wanted it to be a piano door at first but then I wanted it to be fun and bold. So, I end up with graphic door design.

First important thing to do is to remove the paint. I used a paint remover. Make sure to use protective gloves, cover your nose and wear glasses too.

Using an old paint brush, I brushed the paint remover unto the door and waited 15 mins before scraping the paint. I did this by section.

Since there was 4 paint layers, I had to apply paint remover twice. Did a lot of scraping.

I also did a lot of sanding.

Then painted the door with primer and white paint. Now, it looks fresh and clean.

I used masking tape and I went crazy over it. Taping here and there with no direction actually. I just let my hands do the job.  For the paint, I used pastel pink, pastel blue, aluminum and gold.

This is the look for now. I am doing some changes on this door and I am not satisfied with the results yet. I’ll be updating this post very soon.
