when one {door} closes...

While living in North Carolina we collected a few antique and vintage doors. Since moving back to California my husband has transformed two of them into fabulous folding tables that we are now using to display our depression glass and other small collectibles at the antique markets. Another door is going to my sister-in-law who is using it to recreate a door she had in a home that she recently sold. She had been using it as a growing chart, measuring me, my nieces, nephew, my kids, etc. for tons of years.

So today I started browsing around to build on some existing vintage inspired ideas for the remaining doors...and I FOUND TONS OF IDEAS!!! A door alone has such great symbolic meaning | couple that with simply perfect vintage and you have a fabulous backdrop for your wedding ceremony and/or reception.

So here are a few pictures illustrating some DIY ideas...

There are many different places where you can find vintage door these days, even if you don't live in rural North Carolina. Many areas now have architectural salvage yards, you can also shop flea markets, and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in your area. Once again with vintage pieces the options are near endless and I just love that these are pieces that you can incorporate into your home's decor after your wedding day...{simply perfect}. ♥
