I was surprised today to see my last post occurred in August. I have just been very busy at my job at a local college and have not been commenting at your blogs and just barely keeping up with Bloglines but I'm here today and since there has been no sewing going on, I thought I'd show you a transformation I took on in the last few weeks. I have had this door in my possession, and a couple of others like it at one time, for probably 20 years. They were in an old building my cousin ran as a retreat house for the local Diocese and they were renovating and I couldn't bear to see such beautifully constructed doors with such wonderful bead detail go into a dumpster so home they went with me.
Then on someone's blog, I don't remember whose-sorry, I saw a door made into a blackboard and instantly I knew what I was going to do with my door. I have always wanted a blackboard in my kitchen-I grew up in a house with one in the kitchen, but wall space is at a minimum so I needed a small door and this one is tall but skinny. So what to do? Turn it on it's side.
