The Door Prize

Hi everyone!

Mr. Bluebird and I headed out last month to my favorite flea market, Elkhorn, and found this wonderful old door. It was just $20 and only needed a little Furniture Restorer to bring out the gorgeous wood. We definitely got the door prize! 😬


I originally had planned to hang it in a very hard to decorate space in our stairway.  After some discussion with Mr. Bluebird, we decided on a different location - but still in the stair area. It wasn't my original vision, but I think it was the best choice!



It is  a smaller size door, possibly from an old dumb waiter or an under the eaves closet.


It even has the old hardware attached! If you look closely, the knob has the Star of David on it.  Very intriguing! I wonder if it came from a synagogue?



I'm so behind in sharing all that has been happening here at the Bluebird house. I hope to get myself together and start posting more frequently. In the meantime, you can catch a glimpse of our gorgeous new carpeting on our steps.

Hope to be back soon!

Thanks for stopping by,
Jane

  1. Great piece...I think I would search some records of 'demolitions' in the area, for sure! Great piece!
