I moved my farmhouse door to my kitchen and since then have not been happy with the way it left a bare spot in my family room corner.I have tried different things.But I really loved that door there.It added height and interest.
On Friday it was a rainy day but I did get to a few garage sales. I scored!!! I found an old door!
I know an old yellow door nothing special.It was not even chippy.But I really loved the hardware and I knew I could make it special.
Here it is the after. I painted this with a coat of Annie Sloan duck egg blue and a coat of old white.I sanded it down a bit to show the duck egg blue and a little bit of the yellow.
I found that old etched mirror last week at a thrift store.
After taking these photos I decided to change this a bit.
I put a different stool here and added my French heirloom pumpkin.
I think this looks better for fall.Just a pumpkin on a stool.I love the shape of these French heirloom pumpkins.This is a “Cinderella” pumpkin.I have been told these are quite tasty.I have not tried one but I may!
I love finding these old doors.So many fun things to do with these! After I added this mirror I thought wouldn’t this be cool as a vanity? Add a little table in front just that width pull that mirror down an little more to make it the right sitting height.Or how about a bench in front.Lean the door against the wall add a bench in front of it.How cute would that be in a front entrance.This would make a pretty cool table too.Or hang it from a ceiling! Now you know why I am always on the hunt for these!If you see one don’t second guess!! Remember you can always change the paint! Milk paint would be great on this too…..lots of chips!
