Old Chippy White Door

We went shopping at my favorite Wyoming antique shop yesterday...Auntie Q's in Cody.
This guy finds the best architectural pieces!

This door is a Happy Birthday to me present! 
Today is my birthday so I'm posting what I bought for myself for my birthday. I've begun a new tradition, every summer we seem to end up in Wyoming on my birthday and last year I found the most beautiful architectural piece in the same shop...posted here.

Last spring I knew I was going to find the right door in this shop and sure enough...there it was. It was on hinges and he was using it, I hesitated to ask but then figured all he can say is no. He said "everything is for sale"! It was a very good price too since someone had trimmed it down on the bottom a little.

But who cares...I plan to lean it against the living room wall behind an old chair. The same wall also will have the piece that I found last year, once I can get Mr. Wild to hang it!!!
I have lots of old door knobs so I will find just the right one.

Some times you just gotta buy what you want!!!
I'm just so happy with this old door!!!
Thanks for stopping!

Bohemian said...

A Belated Happy Birthday and now I know there are other Gals out there just as excited to get a beautiful Old Door as their Birthday Present too! A couple of years ago that is what The Man got for me, at my request, and I was absolutely delighted... but many of my Friends shook their heads in dismay... they just didn't 'get it'. *Winks* Your Door is Magnificent!!! Love the details and the patina... what a great Architectural Salvage 'score'!

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
