I love old stuff!
Since I was a little girl, I've always been intrigued by "old" things. There is something about finding an old treasure.... and wondering "Where have you been?, What's your history?"
We once lived in an old old farmhouse for a few years when we first moved to Oregon. It had an old shed out back that had many old treasures in it; tools, crocks, etc. I can't really remember all of the things in there, but if my memory serves me right, I believe it even had an old pot bellied wood stove out there.. or some sort of stove. I'm sure it was a workshop of some sort... but I turned it into my playhouse :) I loved pretending it was a cabin like Laura Ingles lived in! :) ... ahhhh memories :)
Anyhoosh... I still adore old things.. Problem is, I never seem to have a solid clear vision of what I'm going to do with them when I find them! (Much to the dismay of my Hunny!)
I have my own little corner of the garage with my "Stuff"... old windows, old shutters, you know, TREASURES! I always tell him that "Some Day" when I have time... I'm going to do something with them! :) Today! I have time.
I found this old door on a trip to Montana to visit my grandparents several years ago. I just HAD to have it!! (among other things... but we don't need to go into that right now :) Hunny just sighs, knowing it might be YEARS before I get around to doing anything with my "Stuff". ( Hey... I've been busy raising kids, working and running my booty off for sporting events.. it's hard to get around to thing.. ya know :)
So for the last few years I've been trying to decide WHAT I wanted to do with it.. Then yesterday, I seen it~!
I was driving through a neighborhood where someone had atatched an old barn door to the side of their front door...making it look as though it was an open and thus exposing the front door (picture an open screen door) it was ADORABLE! Wish I wold have taken a picture! They had it decorated with a wreath. So cute~!
Anyhoosh.. it got my wheels turning.. I got MY old door out today and started experimenting... Hunny said OK! Yayyyyyy (he doesn't always see my "visions" :)
So help me decide: Where do YOU think it looks best?
I just can't make a decision! I'd love your opinions!
