Have you met my friend Mimi from Blue Roof Cabin? She is pretty incredible! If you haven’t seen her site and projects, you should. She is best at what I am worst at…..wood working!
We are both Washington State DIY bloggers and will be flying together to the Haven conference this coming summer.
We were e-mailing the other day, and realized we were both working on door projects.
So we decided to reveal them together….and throw in a few door projects of the past.
The pics below are of Mimi’s Hall Tree. I love all of the detail she adds, and her painting is always perfect for every project.
She is currently teaching painting classes at Abundance Vintage in Centralia, WA, where she also has a shop space.
Fantastic right?! I love the mirror and the legs!
…and here is my “door project”.
I eyed this door at the local thrift shop for weeks.
It was only $15 and I kept telling myself NOT to bring a project home….but I eventually gave in.
Just some paint, chalk paint, wax, a little wood detailing and a handle.
I would love to keep it, but my house is full, so this one will be for sale.
Here are some other door projects from the past.
We obviously see potential in old doors!
The Kitchen Island Update by Mimi. Made from old doors!
Salvaged Door Dinning Room Banquet. Pretty incredible to make all the seating out of old doors!
Here are some “door projects” for my past year of blogging and projects.
The headboard is from a closet that was originally built into the master bedroom. I found the old closet doors in a workroom in our basement.
I re-painted the white paint, but the detailing was light blue and gold. I didn’t even have to repaint that….guess it was meant to be.
How to Create an Inexpensive Focal Wall. Another old door I found in our attic.
Did you enjoy our “door projects” tour?
Hopefully it has inspired you to see old doors in a new way.
