~chippy old door love~

Hi peeps, if you follow me on fb you will know that I am totally in love with my new chippy door, well the sneak peek I gave anyways!

This past weekend I was a vendor at The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market, it was a collection of a great group of vendors, and I was determined this time not to miss out on a little shopping before market opened!

So when I spied this beauty in my friend Janis’ booth {Rust}, I just knew it was coming home with me. The catch about markets is you go there to sell stuff, as Mr rgv reminds me, not to accumulate more. I sold a door, I bought a door. Sometimes it is just too good to pass up!

Janis attached this cute white shelf and frame. I couldn’t wait to bring it home and into my newly painted white living room. See the walls in the background there. 
I am playing around with a beachy feel for the summer, so this door is just the perfect feature.

I know, I KNOW! It is my most favourite thing in the house right now!

Hmmmm, I think it just needs a little starfish touch...

I adore your old chippy door!!! I have a serious weakness for old doors ..... almost up there as I do for corbels. We had to get rid of 14 old doors that I had accumulated in our garage before we tore it down to build the new one last year. Thank goodness we could use one for our own new garage, we sold 4 at the Fieldstone Market and then gave the rest away to Jack's. It's such a shame to see them not being used. That door is lucky to have found you. :-)

Hi Tracey, I found your blog through the pic of your beautiful door on Pinterest. It took me a minute to catch my breath when I saw is soooo perfect!
I have a vintage chippy door propped up on my living room wall too, but it's white. That aqua is the accent color in my house, so...if you ever decide to part with it you know who to contact. lol

This is so lovely! I don’t really know where chippy old doors get their charm, haha! Maybe, it’s simply the way it graciously age… Yes, I think this also applies to doors. :D That is what makes the difference between vintage and old. And I think it’s really better for a display, except if it’s in a farmhouse, so you could protect and preserve it easily. :)

The older the better! Do you have any idea how old that door is? Anyway, I love the faded color of your door.

Vintage never goes out of style! With a little redecorating, the vintage door was given a fresher look! Good job!
