Red Door

Like my name sake...Attic Inspired Crafter...I love bringing the old back to life so when my husband and I went to the huge yard sale on PEI several years ago, I just had to drag a very old door back home with me!

We stored it for several years as even though I had a vision on how I wanted to use it, I had to sell the idea to the husband as it needed muscle to execute my plan.

My plan, was to paint it red and erect it at the bottom of our very long driveway in a little wooded nook, with a garden in front. And that is what we just did!

Inspiration: Scrap lifted this lay-out from one I seen on pinterest.

Paper line: Theresa Collins Spring Fling with embellishments

Inks: Fired Brick and Twisted Citrus

Extra details include: Stitching, odds and ends from stash, Brads, many sizes of circle punches
