More Doors!

I've had plans forever to put up some old doors in my space. 

So I (my Man) drug out a couple of them to the patio
for me to work on.

I grabbed some old sheet music and Mod Podge and went to town!

I decided to fill in the recessed panels on this one.

I like that the original crusty, rusty hinges are still attached.

One of the doors had the coolest crackled paint
that I just couldn't cover up so...
I decided to cover everything BUT the recessed panels.
I've got tons of sheet music,
some with words and some without.
I actually love the words to some of these old songs.

It reminds me of old movies and musicals.
I have so many fun memories of watching them
with my Grandma, Fathe.

Don't you just love the crackled paint?
It's even on the metal plate.

They don't look like it in these pictures but
these are matching doors.
I got them at a yard sale a while back.
The guy said they came from the home
he grew up in here in Riverside.

I really enjoy knowing a little something about old things I get.
Even if I end up making a few improvements to them!

Happy White Wednesday everyone!

Sorry I missed last week but I had forgotten to
take after photos so we had to go back down
to my space at Mission Galleria and
pull all the doors back out to take the pictures!
And my husband didn't even mind,
have I told you how awesome he is?

I was so kindly invited by Terrell to join her new link party
