Custom Painted Cabinet Doors

My boyfriend is custom building a toy hauler. He asked me to paint four of the cabinet doors he is putting in it. I discovered that painting on wood is much different than painting on canvas. The paint acts completely different. It was not better or worse, only different. The slicker surface meant that it would take more than one coat to get good coverage and I couldn't build up impasto without risking that the paint would be bumped off.

In the end, I am quite pleased with the way they turned out. He will finish the outside frame of the door with a brown paper bag/leather look treatment. Here is one of the doors.

Never to let an opportunity to market my work go to waste, I also used the completed images on products in my Zazzle shop.
