Vintage Chippiness

I wanted to have another table surface in the kitchenette of the Media room.

So what do you do? You shop the house and the attic too!

I remembered I had a painted vintage drop leaf table in the attic

that was left over from the antique booth days. I measured and it was perfect.

So down it came.

The antique screen door has been leaning against the wall of the kitchenette.

I pondered back and forth as to leaving it there or hanging it on the wall of the butler’s pantry.

I love this screen door frame that I purchased from my favorite shop,

thinking that I may use it in another home as a butler’s pantry door.

The chippy stool was last seen in the kitchen; however, I am granddog sitting and

he has an active tail, if you know what I mean.

So the stool with the ironstone creamer of hydrangeas found a new home on the table.

A boxwood wreath was hung on the screen door.

Boxwood topiaries added to the vignette to compliment the wreath.

Did I mention that I so love this antique screen door.

Should it not work as a future butler’s pantry door, I am sure I can find another purpose for it!

But until then, I love it in this little kitchenette.

I have been busy with many projects throughout the house.

I took a break from painting to place the table in the kitchenette.

Hope you all had a great weekend and have some great things planned this week.

I will be working on my projects indoors (such as my sweetie’s room) to stay away from the heat.

Have a wonderful day!!!
