Come a knock on my door...

I've had this image in my inspiration files for quite some time! It's been stored away as a great DIY project that I want to tackle, but haven't had the chance to yet.



Designer Brian Patrick Flynn came up with this great project. He took a standard hollow door that is probably in many homes and apts and gave it come character by adding pieces of wood to the door in a lattice pattern.

If you don't have access to a table saw you should make a template of the design you want so you know what cuts need to be made and have them cut at your local home improvement store.

I'm in love!

P.S. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn is also the author of Decor Demon.

It makes me wish I had flat doors. That is beautiful!
Are you going to do it to your doors?

love this color and I can see why it inspires you. This is also the color I have chosen to use in an upstairs boys bathroom. Everything else will be white but above the beadboard I want to use this color. I have to admit yours is a bit more sophisticated than where I am headed but my boys would never appreciate this. :)
I would be so flattered if you would consider sharing this on my first linky party at becolorful.
