Vintage Door Re Love

Hi Everyone.
Here is that lovely vintage door I found at  Vintage a shop in Morris re loved into my home.

I am not sure what it is with me and doors but this one grabbed my attention as it sat lonely in the corner of the shop.
It was screaming I need some love!!!!

This was the first thing to go in her re love.  Just a basic old door knob and let me tell you was well attached!! We (meaning Terry)  actually had to saw the door knob off to get at the inside to remove this.  It had years of rust to keep itself attached to this door!!!

Once we had the old door knob off I was able to attach this old cast iron knob in its place.  Much better look for this old girl.

Ok I really had no business bringing this home since wall space in the new place was full.  It was like going into a puppy store and not coming out with a puppy feeling when I saw this door.  I knew I had to have it.  Plus the price was right!!! So with no place to put her I started the search  what  wall and vignette could be switched up to accommodate this beauty?



Ta da found the perfect spot!  Yep, behind this new re loved Habitat cabinet would be a perfect place for a re love door right??!!!



This door has found a new place in my decor.  It is hard to see in the pictures but the glass in this door is beveled and gorgeous.



She is a keeper!







I still kept my garden vignettes on top of the cabinet.  The lovely door blended right in.



Now this vintage door has a new spot in Junk Chic Cottage II.  I love to rescue and re love pieces that have lots of history and charm to them.

Have a great rest of the week and week end.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. How fortunate that the old glass was still in it! Those narrow panes are unique. It looks beautiful, Kris! There's always room for another door, and another puppy!

  5. I always say, "if you love it, you better bring it home...even if you don't know how you'll use it" But I can't imagine you not finding the perfect place to put any of your wonderful finds. I love your 2nd bath reveal also. I can't believe I had two posts to read this morning! I've been out of touch (sketchy internet service), while my hubby was in a veterans hospital to have thyroid resection. Our nearest Veteran's hospital is about 90 miles away, which with traffic = 2-2.5 hours of travel. Fortunately, they have a "lodge" on site to accommodate overnight stays. Often as a spouse I am waitlisted for a bed and share a room with another female vet or spouse, in order to give vet's priority. This stay I had an entire room for myself, while he recuperated. Just home yesterday, with some unpacking to do...but this morning couldn't wait to hit the desktop with a cupa coffee. So glad a visit to your blog was so rewarding for me. You're such an inspiration Kris! Think I will try to tackle a decorating project of my own today.

  39. You certainly have the "relove" eye! She's gorgeous in her new home. I adore how you put your "love stamp" on items that are just begging for a new home to be loved in! The fact that you are also a nurse "kind of" flows into your "relove" pieces. How fortunate we all are to have you in our lives to share this love.
    Have a wonderful day!
