Add pizazz to even a plain dwelling or shed; make a Rustic Painted Door.  A recycled door from a garage sale or junk shop can be painted in a whimsical style, or with 'faux' paint techniques, or distressed.

Rustic Painted Doors

Some of my garden sheds are taken to the next level with a funky door, painted in a trompe de oeil style (fool the eye, in French) to look like rugged old barn board, or with flowers on a trellis (for the greenhouse, how apt!) or distressed to just look old.

Painted with leaves or other leafy design, just like my camouflage pots, gives an old door a new life. 

The painted door on the greenhouse was recycled, just another old door from a demolition project.  Sanded a bit, and painted with a trellis and Clematis, it's given a new life;

If you've been finding old hardware in your travels, this type of door is the perfect place to use them; An old brass handle, and a barrel lock make the perfect accent for the Eggporeum;

I painted this door with clouds for a friend to put on her shed;
