Makeover Monday: This Old Door

Once in awhile you just get lucky.

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!!!


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?

Thanks for reading!  I have linked this post up with a few bloghops.  If you'd like to join the parties, I've listed all the links in my sidebar.  Hope to see you there!
