Here is a close up of my 'coin door'. I actually bought a coin door on eBay, restored it using textured paint, and it was simply too large for this application. So I had a professional photographer take a few digital shots of the coin door, and touch up a few imperfections. Then I brought the image over to an office supply store and had it printed landscape format, fit to page, 8-1/2" x 11", on nice photo paper, and then laminated using the Hot Roll Laminator.

Turned out beautiful! From about 2 feet you can't even tell it's not real!
