This Old DooR & My First GiVEaWaY!

I found this door on one of my junk shopping trips. I think I paid $5 or $10 for it. It is an old swinging kitchen door. I couldn't help but day dream of the house it come from and the woman whose kitchen it hid; I just LoVED it so much. It was stained dark and looked like it had lived a hard life when I got it. She sat in my garage for a year or so until I found the perfect use for her. See my closet is pretty small (well I think it is anyways) and I needed a place to put my scarves, belts, hats, long necklaces; you know all that odds and ends stuff. Really I just needed a lot of hooks. So this is what I came up with.

She sits in the corner of my room next to my vanity. All I did was give her a quick spray with my trusty rattle can and then some light sanding. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and found every one of these gorgeous hooks; they were all 50% off. I painted the hooks the same color as the door because I wanted it to look as if they might be one piece.
Here's a close up of them.






That brings me to the my exciting news.

I'm doing my first GiVEaWaY ever!

It's a $30.00 gift card to
my FaVoRiTE StoRe.
