Painting Cheat

For economy, the basement bathroom was originally planned to be painted. But when I saw the contractor installed pretty decent douglas fir, I instead decided to stain the woodwork. I went in there all psyched to stain it, then I discovered the ONE piece of MDF in the crown molding. I was trying to decide if I was going to replace the piece or simply paint it.
At the time, I was able to find a paint that matched the stain pretty well. But I never got back into the bathroom to finish it. Today I finally tried out my painting plan. I think it turned out pretty well. I'm pretty sure once this is shellacked, it will not be obvious that that piece is painted.
I'm still a little pissed off about that awful paint grade door the contractor installed. We would have chosen a different door if he had bothered to ask us what we wanted. Staining is not an option, so I will have to paint it. I may paint it with the glossy can of paint we used for the stair risers. I believe it is tinted with the same color as the ceilings, White Hyacinth.

  1. No one will notice that because the rest of the room is going to be spectacular.
