A Pirate's Life
Dec 14, 2011
If you were planning on running for "World's Coolest Mom" this year, I need to warn you now – you've got some stiff competition from Ronda at Batchelors Way.
Ronda is transforming her boy's bedroom into a pirate lair, and is sparing absolutely no detail. Like these doors. Most kids probably have regular ol' closet doors. But NO! This is not special enough for Ronda! Ronda made PIRATE doors out of these doors by painting them brown, glazing them, applying a faux bois technique to mimic real wood grain (which looks awesome) and then a coat of poly on top.
BUT NO! That was still not special enough! She then took 64 wood buttons, belt sanded their surface to look like hammered iron, hand-painted each and every one of them and drilled them into the doors. Oh yeah, her husband Les did a lot of the work too. World's Coolest Parents award is in the bag!
