Faux Stone

Category: Egress,Funky ApplicationsLori @ 3:56 am Comments (2)

To finish up my spontaneous series on the children’s museum, here are a few of the faux-painted doors we saw there.  I think these are even harder to distinguish as doors (when they’re closed) than the planetarium exit.

The doors in the second and third photos have an applied panel so the stone is not only painted on the door, it’s raised and textured, with simulated mortar joints between the stones.  Not to mention that the room these doors provide egress from is dimly lit, so the animal exhibits inside are more visible.
