From doors to wall art

When you have 11′ ceilings, wall decor is sometimes a challenge.

It either looks too small or there is a need for many items.

I am a fan of Erin from @cottonstem and one day I noticed she had doors hanging on her walls. I’m pretty sure she didn’t find her doors in an old disgusting house and save them for two years trying to decide what to do with them.

I loved these so much!

This girl has old nasty bi-fold doors that she found in an old nasty house and kept them for two years trying to decide what to do with them.

My doors don’t have the cute little detail on the top section. But when has that stopped me from making something work.

May I introduce to you, the doors.

Ugly

Dirty

Still holding onto the original door and sliding hardware.

Whatever people……dirty don’t scare me.

I cleaned these babies up

Removed the hardware with vice grips. Those suckers are hard to pull out

Sand all the bumps and bruises away.

Added some cute little wood sections.

Paint – maybe paint a few times before coming up with the best color.

Bat my eyes at a cute husband guy and ask him to hang for me.

Search for the perfect tin buckets to attach to the front and add just a hint of greenery.

Come on!!

As soon as I finish the cutest table ever to sit in front the doors……it will be perfect.

But for now I’ll just enjoy the vintage box full of toys.

Happy Friday friends
