We sprayed it with Deft (laquer) in a eggshell shine. It kept everything intact

We have used a spray poly in satin to seal the chipping paint. Yes, the color & sheen does change a little, but it's worth it to keep from chipping any further. We just sprayed some vintage columns for our kitchen remodel, also.

What do you do if the old distressed door tests positive for lead paint?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I have 3 small kids and have purchased a 100 year old barn door to use as a sliding door with flat track hardware. Did not even think of the lead paint issue when buying. Being 100 years old, of course the paint is peeling/cracking and I love the character of the door and want to perserve that. Just wondering if painting a clear sealer over is safe enough with the kids. I guess if I put enough coats on it may work.

Will the clear sealer make the wood appear darker and shinier? I still want the light gray dull look. Do you have a recommended brand or kind of sealer?

Hey, we painted this room when we moved into our home in 2005...and we don't have a trace of leftover paint to refer to. I'm sorry, I don't remember the color of this paint...

Possibly Para Paints - Moselle or Cloudy Amber - both older palette but have used them to this effect in the past

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to 11 Inventive Headboards
Repurposed door. Upon visiting the architectural salvage yard, consider a door turned on its side. I wouldn't hang it this high above the bed, but hang it exactly where a headboard would be. But you get the idea, and it's a great one.
Dytecture added this to Old Doors, New Charm
Headboard. A great old door works well as an alternative focal point above the bed.
