KNOCK KNOCK ? OLD DOOR REDO!



I FINALLY HAVE MY OLD DOOR FINISHED. 
I LOVE OLD DOORS AND HERE ARE A 
COUPLE THAT INSPIRED ME~



Old door at Aegina - Aegina, Attiki
  

I LOVE THE COLORS IN THESE DOORS.
THIS IS WHAT I STARTED WITH



I WANTED MY DOOR TO SERVE MORE AS A PIECE OF ART AS I THOUGHT 
IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL
I DID ATTACH A BASKET WHICH YOU WILL SEE I PAINTED IT TO GO WITH THE DOOR.
I THINK THIS IS ACTUALLY A FLOWER BASKET.

I ALSO DECORATED MY DOOR WITH A KNOCKER,
AN ANTIQUE DOOR KNOB AND A DOOR KNOB PLATE.
THE DOOR RESIDES IN MY BEDROOM BESIDE MY
NIGHT STAND. I DECIDED I WOULD USE 
IT TO HOLD BOOKS!

HERE IS MY BEAUTIFUL DOOR AFTER... 






VERY HARD TO GET A PICTURE INDOORS AND OF A DOOR THAT
REACHES YOUR CEILING!




NOW I WANTED IT TO HOLD BOOKS AND JUST BE BEAUTIFUL!
BUT IT COULD HOLD JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.
MAYBE EVEN A STARFISH COLLECTION





I HOPE YOU LIKE WHAT
 I DID WITH MY
DOOR..

I LOVE MAKING ART OUT OF THINGS THAT
YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN THINK OF IN THAT WAY.

  4. Love it! The basket is a great touch. I have an old door in my bedroom that is my 'art'...I have a sewing bag that belonged to my grandmother hanging on the doorknob. It's one of my favorite decorations!

  46. May I ask how you did this? I have an old oak cabinet that I want to do the same thing to for my bedroom. I just don't know where to begin...I love the turquoise color with the distressed look, beautiful.

    1. I actually painted this piece and then dry-brushed the highlighted color on it in places, also sanded it
      for the distressed look!
