Vintage Door Vanity

This old door was totally altered for a shabby cottage practicality. It can function as  a desk or vanity. I created this chandelier out of an old lamp shade frame. Wrapped in muslin, vintage rhinestones and wedding veil flowers and pearls added to give more romance.

The mirror is a hand carved piece (not by me) and some old looking faucets for hangers on the front.

Legs from an old dining table. Some leftover trim for the top.

Oh, the candle sconces, aren't they so sweet on this piece?

I love your door! I myself am really drawn to vintage doors and windows. I made a jewelry holder out of my old screen door. Got a 7" picket fence, attached it to the middle of the door to hold my necklaces, stapled ribbon down the sides to hook earrings through, and then tied a very old teacup to a ribbon and put my rings in it. I will take a picture and post it. Your door is soooo kooooool! Posted: 12:14 pm on February 6th
