Door Hoarder Alert!!!! Ha ha!!!! I just was at Vintage https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vintage-Yesterdays-Memories-Todays-Treasures/85235129743 one of my favorite shops this week end and tucked in the corner with a lot of stuff hanging off her, there she was a chippy old door whispering to me, well actually yelling for me to come look at her!!!!!

I needed another old chippy door like I needed another hole in my head but once I laid eyes on her I was smitten and the price was great too.  So I brought her home with every intention of putting her into my office area.  Well.........

That vision did not work out so well.  So while I was wondering what I was going to do with this chippy little beauty I saw the door in my laundry room to the storage room was needing a little update.  So I got the hubby to take some measurements and of course my new chippy door was not going to fit, too big but the hubby said no problem I have tools!!!!! Love a man with tools and who knows how to use them!!!!! So he shaved off some of the door and rebuilt it some and now it fits perfectly in where the old door was.


This is the door I had.  Just a stock door that leads from my mudd room into a storage room.  I had hung the old vintage ironing table I got awhile back on this door.

Here is the "new" old chippy door.  Her window was busted out and they had an old piece of plastic in the window so my hubby got some MDF board that was already painted with chalk board paint.  I did not know you could get these already painted with chalk board paint.  So that saved me having to paint the MDF board.

I love this new old door with the chalk board.  Gives a more vintage fun feel to the laundry room. 

I re hung the old vintage ironing board on the wall near the window.

I re hung my old vintage hangers and door knob hanger on this wall.  So it is all good I found new homes for the stuff that was on the original door.

I am loving my new door.  Thanks to my wonderful husband for his talents in making my visions work.  I love the history this piece has and love the character it gives to the laundry/mud room.
Hope you have a great week.  Thanks for visiting.
Kris

  6. I am totally impressed with your door and the vision you had. Adds a sentimental touch to your laundry room. It is truly a gift when we have husbands that go with our flow and assist in the heat of need. My husband is very helpful too, even when he can't vision the end result and is perplexed by what I am doing.

  9. I love your "new" old door, Kris! It looks perfect in your laundry room. I had no idea you could get MDF already painted with chalkboard paint. What a time saver! I'll have to look for that next time I'm at Home Depot.

    Thanks for linking up to The Creative HomeAcre blog hop! : )

  14. I love it! It turned out so cute. The chalkboard insert was a perfect touch. I'm curious how much is a good deal on a door. I don't see them very often but there's a beauty in a local store that I keep eyeing and trying to figure out where I'd put it and how to justify the expense. ;-)

  17. Well that is just the c-u-t-e-s-t thing! I love how you hung socks across it and what you wrote above it. Too funny! Kudos to your handy husband too. Mine probably would've said......"oh well". LOl!

  21. I love that door...it looks great in your laundry room!! Isn't it great to have hubbies with power tools. Hoping mine will get my shelves up in the kitchen for my white pitcher collection soon. First...we have to have our garage sale, so all the stuff can get out of our garage. Now...if all this rain will just go away, so we can have the garage sale.
    hugs,

  25. Kris, I've jumped to my feet and I'm applauding wildly! That is the cutest, most adorable thing I ever saw in a laundry room. What a fun chalk drawing. My goodness, I can't get over it. Have to pin this immediately. What a clever and fun idea. I am sure it will be copied in some form by many (including me) in some fashion, if I can find a place to do something like it. So glad you found yet another chippy door to wow us with. Amazing how many uses you can find for so many salvaged items!

  32. I love this post!!!
    I love old doors (and shutters, and windows) too!
    I love old salvage! I use "old" instead of new whenever possible. I just changed out all the door knobs in the house to the old glass knobs. They look stunning.
    I recently found a box of gorgeous old hardware at a junk sale. A box full of cabinet and drawer pulls. I am going to change out all the knobs in my kitchen to the beautiful old ones. I drive my hubby crazy. LOL.... he says I invent things for him to do!
    Your door looks amazing! Great job!
    Thank you for sharing!

  34. My, you are getting so good with your blackboard lettering. I have had a blackboard for some time now, no lettering yet. I need to get some confidence to give it a try.
    Loved your post, as always.

  45. I like your new old door. Why make it look like it’s faded when you can get an actual faded one? Also, the missing socks department is a great idea! I should implement that in my laundry room.

  46. Very vintage indeed. I love your idea on that little chalkboard effect right there. You must have a wonderfully designed home! I bet most of the interior designs of your home are quirky and witty too! This is definitely a nice addition to your home.
