Dressing Up a Door
To add interest to the space, the couple chose a French door for the closet. Instead of buying a more expensive door with frosted panes, Trinity spent less on one with clear panes and sandblasted them himself. For visual interest, he created a rose stencil using painter's tape and a utility knife on a center pane. Trinity made the design freehand, but it's also easy to use a stencil to draw a design on tape, and then cut it out. After sandblasting, he removed the tape to reveal the design.
