One of our customers at the shop recently called to let us know they were having a barn sale and they were allowing us in a day early to preview. This is always so much fun when the twelve of us get together shopping! Friendly bartering and elbow throwing for the good stuff!
Most of what was available was crusty, rusty perfection. I grabbed this petite old door, it was exactly the right amount of chippy. Unfortunately the original wavy glass was broken, but I thought if I added a chalkboard it could work.
I decided to make it a message and mail center. My husband helped me to add some rustic feet so that it would be stable. I had some great old tin from Mom's barn that we fashioned into a small awning over the chalkboard.
While shopping at The Plucky Maidens Junkfest I grabbed a long, skinny wire basket and a black metal hand with string tied around the finger. I had acquired what I like to call "a wood whatchamacallit" from the local Goodwill that I covered in pallet wood scraps and attached to form a small tabletop. I found some little hooks at the craft store and attached them to the front.
Linking up with these lovely ladies:
