AN OLD SCREEN DOOR

A while back, Murray and I were at a large auction.  And I mean really large – three buildings stuffed with all kinds of treasures.  There were so many great items but a few things immediately caught my eye – an old drop leaf table, a porcelain top table, and some very old and worn screen doors.

I featured the drop leaf table that I was able to get at this auction in a blog this past summer.  You will also see that table in one of the pictures below.

The first thing I did was to lay the doors in the yard and hose them off.  Should I leave them as they are?  Should I paint them?  What exactly was I going to do with them?

I decided that this door would hang on the wall in the spare bedroom.  And since shades of blue are the primary color in that room, I knew Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue would be the perfect color.

This is a rather long wall on which I had nothing hung.  So I decided to hang the door lengthwise.

And center the drop leaf table beneath it!  Two wonderful pieces of furniture that were rescued and given new life.  Now my next decision – how do I decorate the screen door?  A burlap wreath would look wonderful hanging from the screen door.  I think I have found my next project.  Stay tuned!!!

p.s.  Sorry about the light at the top of the picture.  I am certainly not a photographer!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
