Let's Go Half-sies

Remember my $5 vintage 1940's craigslist door? The beauty of solid wood is that you can cut it without the whole thing completely falling apart. I finally got to put to use my free Glidden paint-by-mail (this is how full the can was AFTER I painted....looks like I'll have this stuff for years). Just one coat - the messier the better, some old thumbtacks, and some hooky-do's. That's it. Perfect for photos, inspirational messages to my children, old keys, and, you know, whatever else strikes my fancy...

  6. HAHAHA! That is very cute! I love the quote. Very creative idea. I love it! What are your plans with the rest of the door?? Shall I wait and be surprised?

    Oh, and my friend was wondering if you were thinking about painting your fireplace black since you are a big contrast person. She was just curious and so am I. I love it how it is personally.
