Wood graining...

A nice project I had this week, to redo the surround trim on the front door of a beautiful home on a hilltop in Escondido CA.  The trim was painted and prepared by painter extraordinaire Doug Eagleson of Escondido, and readied for me to do my paint magic on it.  I must say, Doug is the most meticulous precision painter I have ever had the privilege to paint after...he put on solid base color for the woodgraining finish to sit on.

A solid color base paint and taking time to prep and tape off is a big part of the job...foundation, foundation, foundation!


Working in layers, I put on three different colors of brown to achieve the depth and grain of real wood.

After...



Along with Doug painting the dated wood door with a color we selected, it updates it and makes this an inviting front entrance to this beautiful, 
warm family home.

Not to mention...it was a warm, breezy day and the views from this home are wonderful.  Once again, I'm fortunate to be able to be creative most everyday, in some of the most beautiful environments in San Diego.

High 5's to everyone!
