Chippy Header

Happy Sunday everyone.  Hope you had a great week end.  Loving summer so much.



Here it the great chippy header I scored from Jeanine's Chippy Shabby Home sale last Saturday.





My heart started beating faster the minute I saw this chippy love at the sale.

Just a wonderful old piece of history with the perfect patina.

I think it compliments my other chippy pieces in this room.



Terry had to cut it down some it was too long and so he took about an inch off the bottom so it would fit perfectly between the crown molding and the top of the cabinet doors.

I played with it and added some paint to have less wood showing.  You know me and white!!!



I did like it chippy the way it was but I did not want so much of the wood showing so I was glad I gave it some more white.  



Hey you know me I will stare at it for awhile and if I want more wood showing I will have Terry sand it for me.  That is the beauty of paint it goes on and comes off easily.






So for now it will be chippy white.  Thank you Jeanine this was a killer piece.  The pictures do not do it justice.  It is so awesome over that TV cabinet in this room.



The cottage sign that was over the TV is now re located over the front entry door.




So now you have seen some of my great treasures found from Jeanine's home sale last Saturday.

Have a great new week.
Kris

  21. Hi Kris!
    Oh my gosh, so beautiful. Your room looks amazing, with each piece you have added is has all come together, so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I absolutely love this new piece! It is beautiful with or without the paint. And you are right about being able to paint something or take the paint off. This fits perfectly in the room. I know you are so proud of it. I love the cottage sign...all of it looks gorgeous!!

  23. Hi Kris, I would have snagged that header up in a flash second, you scored girl. You have just added that much more salvage to a wall of layering of pieces from floor up.

    I am off to find a few salvage pieces myself, I so need some wood pieces to anchor the walls where art just won't add as much interest as a great salvage wood piece would do like your wall here.

    A wonderful share, and lots of inspiration.

  25. I LOVE EVERY PART OF THIS POST! What a score, a true score!!!! My summer is waning; soon I have to go back to school and all this time I wanted to paint my kitchen, but I can't do it yet until I sell a large pine linen press that is standing right in the front of a window...I just want clean white in there and then I can HAVE FUN!

    Love it all, Kris! Anita

  28. Wonderful header! I love how it mimics the shape of your tv stand and your addition of a little white paint makes it ever better! Great find! That was some sale! Enjoy a lovely week! Hugs, Leena

  30. ;ove headers. working on adding new and found pieces to my doors. nothing will match...but I don't care. If a house is newer without build in character, I believe it is my job to add it. I love how when you find a new piece, the one it replaces finds a new home.

  31. Love the header! Adding the white is definitely YOU! I bet you are loving it! Have a great week, sending prayers! Cindy xoxo

  32. Fantastic piece and super score. Honestly, on waiting for summer to end. It's been a humid, hazy summer. Tough for me to deal. Our plants on our deck are horrible from a lack of sun and so much humidity, especially my herbs. Have a great week
