Not long ago I dropped by a yard sale, and what to my wondering eyes did appear but a beautiful old, chippy, flaky, rusty door.
Hey, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, don't judge!
Seriously, this was something I'd been hoping to find for awhile.
Originally I had wanted one like this to use as a headboard, from a great tutorial I saw on Pinterest. But when the door of my dreams didn't appear, I finally moved on and made different kind of headboard.
So instead of hanging behind my bed, this door would find a home and a new life in my shop. Standing there at the side of the road, I could picture it: Painted, distressed, waxed. Panels would be chalkboard to draw my logo and to write messages to customers. As an added bonus, this old beauty even had a mail slot. I would use that for a business card drawing!!!
OH HAPPY DAY!
I know. I need a life. Sigh....
Here's how she's shaping up so far. Just playing around with the chalk, so this isn't a finished product yet.
The basket hung from the mail slot will hold my business cards, and a notepad of paper so shoppers can write their info and drop it in the slot for a monthly drawing.
What do you think?
