And here it is all finished!
I had a tough time deciding how to decorate the door.... flourishes? decoupage? collage? It took me a couple of days of thinking, but I finally settled on stripes. I taped up the door. I had to think backwards--wherever there was blue tape, there would be white, and whatever was left white would be covered in blue paint...
I used a gold Sharpie pen paint for the gold stripes. The black tape is "artists' tape" and it didn't work all that hot, but then, I didn't use it for its intended purpose.
Next I had to touch up the stripes with the paint pen. You can see a "before" and "after" below:
... and put it on my dressing room table. Viola! I'm delighted with the final result. It really helps pull the room together, and it will give me a great place to tuck away less-than-sightly items..
