a little patriotism...

Kind of jumping the gun on the ol' holidays, but I'm trying to prepare for a sale in May.  
I painted another one of the Ikea cabinet doors.

Step 1:
Sand

Step 2:
Paint

Step 3:
Blow dry the paint in between coats because I'm impatient.

Step 4:
Sand again

Step 5:
Wipe on Gel Stain 

Step 6:
Make a vinyl star stencil

Step 7:
Paint the stencil the same color as the board to seal the paint. I like my lines extra crispy. 

Step 8:
Paint the star burnt red




Step 9:
Add some patriotic numbers.





Step 10:
Hum the National Anthem and dream of bbqs and fireworks.
HUM HUM HUM HUM HUM HUM 

Happy Tuesday!
