There are a few things I truly get enjoyment and comfort from. One is a darn good cup of coffee.
Another...having something with heartfelt meaning...something that sparks a happy memory, that makes you think of times past and loved ones.
Now, you'll have to excuse the fact this is a bit of a repost. But I love this screen/closet door as much or more now than I did when I introduced it to you. A very sweet lady, living on the farm my Mother worked at when I was very young, kindly gave me this door instead of tossing it to the trash.
You can read the original post HERE.
Are you back yet?
Take a look at the before photos of this door. Ouch. It certainly had seen it's better day and I knew this was not a job for the faint at heart.
So......I put on my big girl
undies gloves and got to work. Lots of elbow grease went into this project, but oh so worth it!
If you're intersted in the whole story, and the tutorial on these panels...
Now I couldn't leave the other pantry door out of the post. It doesn't have the history the other door does, but has evolving character with a large chalkboard panel. I used some "web"spiration for the design, after having a bout of chalkboard drawer's block. Notice though...I got lazy and distracted by the time I got to the bottom lines! haha
