It was a rainy Friday, when my friend Susan called to say I needed to get on over to Woodruff for an estate sale. She saw some doors I might like. I forget what I was doing at the time, but I know I dropped it all, threw some tarps in the back of my car and headed out.
This was not an ordinary estate sale, where the homeowners have passed away and the entire contents house is up for sale. This sale was at the home of an auctioneer. He had 40 foot containers filled with stuff, barns filled with stuff and a yard filled with stuff.
But when I turned her around…Wowza! Check out the lock! And the two colors of paint! Inside the panels is a yellow color and the framework is red. On top of that is some flaking grey paint. I love it! I don’t want to change a thing.
I brushed the dirt off, did some light sanding and sealed them with polyurethane. (I would have just thrown them in Thomas’ room, but being a good mother, I decided I didn’t want him dying from the flaking lead paint drifting into his lungs as he slept.)
So here they are friends! I think they look fantastic as his headboard. I turned them upside down so the locks would be visible. Thomas wanted his bed in the corner to give him more floor space, but the commercial headboard I originally bought would not fit in this space. Well, I do believe this is a much better solution.
(No, his comforter is not purple, although it looks that way in the picture. It is a navy blue. Just thought I’d clear that up.)
Thanks for dropping by!
