Salutations! I’m blogging in today with a new addition to the cottage living room and I have to say I’m quite tickled with myself over this one. I’ve been wanting, make that obsessing over, a chippy paint door. I’ve seen so many dreamy weathered beauties on the web, but only a couple while out hunting around town for treasure and chippy paint goodness. The few that I found have been marked too high for me and the likes of an old chippy paint door.
Every time I’ve come across an overpriced beauty, my mom has mentioned that she has a stack of old doors in her back garage. I’ve actually gone and looked at them a couple of times now. But they’re not chippy, or weathered, they’re pretty old perfectly painted white doors and I’ve always passed.
Do you see where we’re going with this … until now!
So I placed this chippy cutie in the living room to add a little cottage charm to the corner of the room. She’s all dressed up with a snugly scarf and Rosemary from the garden. Along with the Morse chair, this little corner of the room is shaping up to be a nice and cozy corner for cold winter days.
This new addition has been a major topic at supper time as the family ponders why we need a “door to nowhere.” It’s a little nontraditional and weird for them I suppose. But they got used to the empty frame kick I was on for a while (still love those), they’ll get used to this chippy “door to nowhere” too!
Paisley is completely wiped out! After a long rainy couple of days the sun finally came back out and we headed to the trail this morning for a super long walk. We’ve just gotten in now and she’s since found her sunny spot on the floor and that’s probably it for her! Me on the other hand, well I’m pretty excited to share this door with you so I’ve been buzzing around snapping photos and foofing. And now it’s back to the laundry, vacuuming, errands, dinner, and all those little things that I put on the back burner while enjoying the last couple rainy days of time off with family. Don’t mind chores at all with the sun shining in! Best get to it.
