Chalkboard and coat-rack!
You may remember a few weeks ago I was stumped as to what to do with an antique door I had found in our yard. It was one of the original doors to our house and had been exposed to the elements so long the center panel had rotted out. Here is the before picture:
Thanks to everyone who posted such great suggestions on what to do with it! I went with the chalkboard idea mostly because I decided to sell it at the flea market and I wanted to keep it simple. Thanks to Camille at The Vintique Object for guidance on what materials to use for it (hard board).
I cleaned the whole thing up really well and then warmed up the wood with some wax. Also. I was able to find these antique brass hooks and attached them to the sides to add interest and more function.
I think would be so cute in somebody’s entryway with a little bench at the bottom and some baskets for shoes, etc.
The bag hanging on the hook was another find–a vintage woven market bag. That will be going to the flea market as well.
Sorry for being off the blogging radar this week. John was out of town, Becky has had a really bad stomach bug, and something beyond my technical skills was going on with the formatting on the blog. Thankfully my IT guy returned and I think we are getting back to normal.
Thanks for stopping by!Pin It
