Old house was going to be torn down, I removed some doors and gave one so far a new life.

added gorgeous wall paper to the upper inset area and painted a peachy wash over it to give it

an aged effect. Attached an antique footboard for the bench support and there you have it........

BTW, we are opening a new antique/vintage store in Knoxville (Fountain City area) and would love to have you as a vendor if you are ever interested in booth rental. Your merchandise is exactly what we're looking for. Great Job! Posted: 4:56 pm on June 20th
