Mr. & Mrs. Signs

I found a pair of old buffet doors at an estate sale that my husband and I went to in Oak Park, Illinois. There they were buried beneath a pile of broken furniture pieces in the garage.

I picked them up and I could feel how heavy they were.  When I saw them, I immediately envisioned what I wanted to do with them.

First, I removed the hardware and lightly sanded the doors down. I painted them a pretty sage green and glazed them to pull out the details of these beautiful doors.

Check out Sophia's Decor for glazing tips.
Then, I stenciled onto the center of the doors a "Mr." and "Mrs." in brown paint.

I finished it with Miss Mustard seed's furniture wax.

For a finishing touch I replaced the knobs, which I purchased at World Market. When I bought them they were on sale. I love me a sale!

Here they are in their new home.
