Some of you may remember when I redid this door ( you can see the technique I used HERE )
and how I gave it to Caroline from Piorra Maison as a " second store opening " gift
some of you may even remember that I got Annie Sloan herself to sign it !!! ( HERE )
Well - when I bought that door - and 2 others - for almost nothing I might add - I didn't notice until a week later that he had a few more outside in the garbage ( he was renovating his house and getting rid of them - lucky me ) they're from a 120 year old Victoria flat - and I decided last night it was time to make one for myself.
This one is identical to the one I made before - 2 others are huge doors with windows on the upper half ( outside in the garden this summer? ) and the last one - well you'll see it at the end of the post :)
I haven't put in any of the stencilling yet - but I will - I need that little chandelier on it :)
And I didn't use the same technique as I did on Caroline's - I simply did a white wash with ASCP Pure White - white washing allows the darkness underneath to show through - very faintly - ( I wanted to write subtle ( y ) subtly - doesn't that spelling look wrong to you ?
and then I decided to add a little shelf to this one
I also had a scrolled metal piece of art
The shelf holds 2 hearts that my daughter Ashley made me a few years ago - I just love them
My ode to Valentine's day
my rusty old keys
and a small tea light are just enough for this small shelf
The only thing that's missing is..................can you spot it - isn't it glaringly obvious?
Where is the Ambassa-DOOR when you need her?
Annie if you don't get back here - I'm afraid I may have to take matters in my own hands
hmmm - maybe I can transfer her signature on there LMHO
I have a beast of one that I'm working on for the kitchen
John says - Oh c'mon now - this is ridiculous now
Suzan says - Ya think?
John says - How many old doors do you need in one house?
Suzan says - You can never have too many old doors John - never
Suzan says - Ask Annie
John says - Annie who?
Suzan says - ANNIE SLOAN - I'M GOING TO TELL HER YOU DON'T REMEMBER HER
John says - I can guarantee you Annie does not have a house filled with old doors
Suzan says - Well if she doesn't - she'll want to when she sees the kitchen one
We're old buddies after all
Well maybe not OLD buddies - but my eyes a-door-ed her ........................
but she's a million miles away from me ....................
( or I'd get her damn signature )
ARE YOU FED UP OF ME BRAGGING YET?
( ok - I won't tell you that we had dinner with her and her husband also )
Have a great one all !!!
