Luckily, not a real squirrel. Just squirrel colored paint. On the doors. Two down, six more to go!
Handy Sammy is home visiting his family, so I took this opportunity to paint the main bathroom door. When only the boys are using it and they don’t care about privacy.
I used Behr’s Squirrel, color matched to Glidden’s Duo paint. Two coats of paint on each side with drying time between and here we are.
This is the only room we’ve installed new trim, and I love the contrast of the dark gray door with white.
This color changes depending on the lighting. Sometimes it has a green tint, others slightly brown. But here’s the most accurate shot of the color.
And now the brass handles don’t look terrible. Still not my favorite, but better. Perhaps I can use a very fine sandpaper to take the polished brass down to a satin brass? Ben is completely against spray painted handles, so that’s out. I’ve also tried Blue Magic and steel wool without any change.
Do you like dark painted doors? Have you used a fine sandpaper to tone down the brightness of brass?
