The craziest idea I've had, yet.

This will top weird in projects, I guarantee.

An old door as decor. I took this idea I had and ran with it. Tweaked it, if you will. And my totally kind daddy-o was nice enough to humor me. In fact, if I mentioned it to anyone I usually got a strange stare, and a "What?" Yeah, I know, it is strange.

But ze door ees feeneeshed. And I adore eet.

Again, the $5, beat up door:

Oh, and the free 20 year old shutters.

The cheapest spraypaint, like evah.

I mean that both ways. 99 cents, and cheap in quality. Which is purrrrrr-fect for an old look. Puuurrr fect. Sprayed it, distressed it.

Ooh, it's lookin' old already.

An old, ornate door knob thingy:

$2.50. Yeah, that's it. 'S why I love Hob Lob.

$2.50 each for these. What a sweet pair of knockers.


Some signage. (Did I mention I can cut my own vinyl now? Now I just have to bug myself when I need some. But that's another post.)

And we've got a finished product. Almost.

I can't wait for the shutters to go up. I think it's really going to be the cherry on top. We are just going to hinge 'em so that's thee last step.

So, $15.50 for my mostest favoritest decoration in the house. Yeah, it's weird. It's me weird.

I think it's a cool idea! Love the paint and the wording. This would work great in a mudroom, too, where someone could add hooks for coats and stuff. Very creative!

Not weird...inspired and AWESOME! :)

Oh, I'm swooning, and drooling.
This is perfect. Really, perfect.

I love products that don't mess around with a fancy name.
Spray Paint... means spray paint! LOL
