A Door on the Wall
Rewind to last summer- my husband and I were yard sale-ing and found two doors with three large windows. We paid $10 for each door- a true steal in my opinion! Many times I thought of selling them on CraigsList because I wasn't sure how to use them and they were taking up space in my garage. Boy, am I glad I dragged my feet on that one!
When I rearranged and decluttered my sewing room, I had a large wall with nothing to hang on it. So, I thought I would see if the door would fit on the wall. It did- with 5 inches to spare!
I cut vintage sheets to one inch larger than the window openings (20 x 21) and ironed the raw edges under. I used clear packing tape to press them flat into the back side of the windows.
With some very heavy duty screws, my husband hung it on the wall. The fabric is behind the glass, and the glass now becomes my personal dry erase board!
It's perfect for drawing patterns or ideas that are floating in my head.
Or for writing scripture that I need to memorize.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Anyone post about how they repurposed something or have a great tutorial to share?
