This is the original antique door. It was a creme color with missing hardware and to me it looked like the perfect solution to my message board problem that I had wanted to do something about for a while.This picture was taken in the first part of November. Actually if you look at the date, it was two days before we found out about our baby. Needless to say, this project was ready to be started but, due to unforseen circumstances it has sat against the garage wall for two months. Well, it has finally happened. I actually had a "creative bug" for a day....which hasn't happened for a long time. It's probably because of all the days we sat around lounging, playing games and watching movies during the new year's holiday. I was ready to actually do something. I took down the Christmas decorations and was actually inspired to do something. Reed was really excited that I was beginning to act a little bit like my old self. He was willing to go to Home Depot and get some paint with me and help me with the parts of the project I couldn't do myself. Such a great husband!! He probably was so excited to see a little bit of me come back to life.
This is what the final project looked like with all the book bags hung up and all the stuff back on the magnetic board. If you want to see the entire project with how-to steps, check out my design blog. I only blog personal stuff on the family blog. So, most people don't know why I dropped off and haven't done my usual projects. But, this project was really fun and I've wanted to do for a while. Hopefully it won't take me another two months to do something else.
