Knock, Knock...Part 2

The weather has finally "cooled" off here in Nebraska. It's actually cool and rainy today and feels good for a change. My grass is ever so thankful. LOL

Just a REMINDER that the CSN Stores $40 gift certificate giveaway ends tonight! So sign up if you haven't yet! I'll announce the winner tomorrow. :)

I wanted to share another blast from the past project! In our basement, we have a partly unfinished room. To be honest that was one of the selling points of this house for us. LOL So I can have a craft room and not have to worry about spilling paint, sanding, etc...This room is also the entrance from our basement garage. This was not a fun site to see everyday when coming into our home. This was a very bad day in craft room land when I took this picture. (You crafters out there know how it is...)

So I scored like 10 old doors for $10 from my cousin! They were sitting out in our shed when I came up with the idea of making a "wall" out of them. My hubby was more than happy to free up a little space in his shed and began assembling.

I ended up painting the doors "bread basket" from Pittsburgh paints. Then I added some dark walnut stain for some richness. I purposely left the door knobs and hinges.

Now this wall is one of our favorite things in our house! We have a separate space for our mudroom area and we don't have to see MY mess as we enter our home on a daily basis. Much cheaper than putting up drywall!

I hope you all have a wonderful evening! I'll be back tomorrow with a winner!

Update:the giveaway has ended. Thanks!

Funky Junk's Sat Nite Special


  1. I loved it when you first posted it and I love even more now. We bought a bunch of screen doors and closed in the south end of our patio. Thanks for sharing your idea with us. Opened my eyes to the possibilities!

  2. Kindra love love love the wall of doors! and even better after you painted them! Great idea!! How r they attached to the wall?

  3. They look great! I want to do this outside on my neighbor's side that has 5 dogs...My husband thinks it may offend him. Great job!

  4. i love it kindra!! sooo wish i had room to do that here. :)

  5. I love how the doors turned out, but how do you have them attached to the ceiling? I think it's a great idea.

  6. get out! This is so cool and UNIQUE. What made you think of this - so awesome! What character! Can you tell I like it?
