Chippy Goodness!!!!!
I went to my one of my favorite shops yesterday Tattered Tiques and I found this sweet little bundle of chippy goodness. You know how I have a love affair with old chippy doors and this one was love at first sight. :) :) :)

This old door needed to come home with me.  I have not figured out what I will do with her yet or where she will end up but I had to have her.  So into my car she went.


I love that she had all her parts still attached!!! Look at the chippy door knob and key hole.  It has the identical knob and key hole on the other side of the door.  This door is chippy on both sides and in all the right places.  This was a great treasure. Now to find a good place for her in my home.  I may have to have the hubby build me a new wall when he comes home since I am running out of wall space!!!! Ha Ha!!!  He will love that!!!
Kane County Flea Market tomorrow.  Wooooo Hooooo hopefully more Chippy Treasures to bring home!  I think with the weather finally decent here in Chicago land I am hoping some of my favorite vendors will be at the flea this month.
Have a great week end.

  11. I have such a fetish for old doors and this one is perfect chippy love! Looks great right where she stands! We are finishing our basement and I recently found an old green door at an antique mall to hang on the small pantry. I think I surprised the painters when I put tape on it saying "please don't paint". Like you, I love her just the way she is! Great find!
    hugs,

  12. Love your door and look forward to seeing where you put it! It looks narrower than the usual door. Sun was shining but still a wee bit on the chilly side about an hour west of Chicago in IN. Nancy http://cozythymecottage.blogspot.com/

  15. I think I know what you need to do with the door. Get in the car and drive it out to California. Then you can help me hang it in place of the big mirror over my dresser.

    I bought the paint for my dresser - Annie Sloan Greek Blue- but I am not looking forward to painting the mirror. I have been thinking that it is a spot where I could put a door sideways along the wall, add a mirror and some other fun bits. Your style is rubbing off on me.
