A Little Change

Hi all!
Hope you had a great weekend!
It's baby shower central around here. Only 5 more days til the big, and I do mean big event. We are hosting 55 ladies for the shower. So it's non stop stuff!
Anyway, I decided to make a small change in the corner of my family room.
I had an old book shelf in the corner for ages, and I had gotten this really cool door a few months ago at a flea market. I put the small bookshelf in my workspace to hold more seam binding and craft supplies. Moved the door in the corner where the bookshelf had been. I really love this door. It has a great chipping and cracking.
I also found this cool doorknob hook thing at a garage sale a couple of days ago.
I had a different smaller one in it's place. Door $20, doorknob hook thing $5, new look, priceless.
So that is my show and tell for this week, as I am getting my home, decorations and other various things ready for the baby shower. I will have plenty of pictures to share with you.
Have a great week!

Your door in the corner is lovely, Rosemary.
Much luck with the preparations for the baby shower.
My daughter and I are going to a baby shower on the 29th.

Have a good week, and a busy one, I bet.

Ohhh ohhh...looks like you've been spammed there!

The door is wonderful! I can just see a Christmas wreath hanging on it at Christmas. An old mirror would look cool down the middle.
Great find for the price!!!!!!!
