A unique and eclectic door

A few days ago I shared a few pictures of a door I found on the side of the road for FREE! Here is a recap of the photos:



Of course I knew I wanted to paint the door, but I also knew I wanted to add a little extra "oomph"! Therefore, I opted to paint a quote on it. I decided to use a Pottery Barn inspired quote I used on a sign I did back in January....


I am in love with the outcome of this piece for several reasons. One being that it is one of a kind. The second is that it can be used in several differnt ways. Of course it can be used for its intended use as a door. I can totally picute it in a boutique as a fitting room door with a cute curtain hanging over the backside of the window. Or, it would make a HUGE statement on a large wall as art.






Hope everyone had a great weekend.

  13. How could someone get rid of such a nice door? It even still has the glass in the windows. I love the quote you chose. I love how quotes on things can really bring art to life.
