This funky silver piece Im told came from a vintage radiator.  Youd fill it with water and hang it from the radiator to add humidity into the air.  Here it works perfectly on the door to hold greens.
I dont know if you remember these spools, but  I purchased them from the queen of quanity Shelley Widener from Texas.  Theres a million and one things you can do with them, but here they are used as a simple embellishment. 
Cant get much more Christmas-y than silver and white.  These two pieces mesh perfectly together.
Love the zig zag pattern on the piece. 
And you just cant beat chippy white!
This was your original sneak peek.  It was the piece de resistance.  Just a simple bulb hanging from the top!
Heres another, bigger picture of the door.  I was going to show you more, but oops, it sold right away before I could.  My bad.  But then again, it sold, so I guess, my good!

As you all may know, I love white.  And when I found this small barn door at a local flea market for a mere $8, all chippy and white, I knew it was a winner, winner, chicken dinner!  It was the perfect size to hang as wall art.  It just needed a little jazzing up!
