I got this amazing vintage door at an antique store for only $20! The doors next to it were priced between $100 and $200- so I knew something was up. I took it up front and asked them- they said it was probably a mistake, but I talked them into giving it to me for the tagged price! woot-woot!!

I loved the chipped paint, and would have kept it as is- but it was chipping like crazy...and I was worried about lead paint. So after safely removing the paint, I took all the necessary precautions against lead paint. After I painted everything, I added a bit of stain to distress it, and then I attached two 2x4s (cut to desired length) with some screws, giving the door "legs." Here is the finished result:
Now that I've had it for 9 months or so, I'm thinking I want to "shabby" it up a bit. It needs some more distressing...
I will be linking this up to some of the AWESOME blogs found HERE.
