Posts Tagged ‘key plates’

The weekend is upon us and I’m more than ready to jump into it.

Last weekend I was really domestic, getting caught up on house cleaning chores, doing piles of laundry, and generally doing the things I wasn’t doing while I was busy selling stuff at craft shows.  Because I was feeling so domestic I got carried away and started obsessing about the french doors I inherited from an old convent.  I want to incorporate those doors into my house and have been trying to think of possibilities.

I got a nice response on the last post about the doors by Nano, and a helpful one too.  She thought I could get Ray to do anything I wanted if only I would feed him sardines and cashews and let him wash them down with whiskey.  (She would know, Ray is her brother.)  But if that didn’t work she suggested a Google image search of “repurposed french doors.”

I took Nano’s advice and started a Pinterest board dedicated solely to The French Door Project.  I’ve been having a blast looking at all sorts of repurposed doors and other vintage door projects.  I really like this one:

What a great idea! Now I have to go to an architectural salvage shop (only one of my favorite things to do) and pick up a bunch of key plates to make this. Lots of great ideas on Phantastic Phinds.

Alas, this weekend I have to suppress my desires to collect key plates to assemble a light fixture and concentrate on some candle production.  I might nudge the chemist in myself and concoct a nice little autumn fragrance of apple cider.  We’ll see how that goes.

Until next time, have a lovely weekend!
