Spicing Up An Old Door

 After installing a new door with my daughter, I looked behind me and saw this....minus the black void, oops... forget the before I started picture.
To make it somewhat cohesive with the new door,  a little makeover was needed.

As you can see from the above picture, some chalkboard paint was applied,  keeping the measures in sync with the new door.

A piece of cork board was cut to size and covered with fabric, also keeping the measurements in line with the panels on the new door.

Using some scrap oak moulding, the chalkboard paint and cork were framed.  A bit of glue and some finishing nails and voila
I taped the cork and chalk boards and started the paint job.  I primed the door with a quality primer and then used a baseboard and trim paint.
After two more coats of paint, I decided to call it done.

I am pretty happy with the results.
