Chippy, Crackling Architectural Art - The Thrifted Door
Hmmm... Outdoor buffet table top? Rose bush trellis backdrop? Art wall? Wreath holder? There are so many great uses for shabby vintage barn doors. And, this one is nice and skinny with lots of panels! I think I will lay it across 2 vintage wire milk crates to make a coffee table for my covered patio filled with old lanterns and candles.
Check out the perfect patina close up. It's my newest thrift score - purchased yesterday for only $2.00. I have been busy adding many coats of clear, oil-based urathane to this piece in fear the chipping paint contains lead. It will also serve to prevent the exisiting paint from deteriorating further.
