Vintage Door Re Love

 





If you have been following along you know we decided to take down a portion of this wall to let more natural light into the kitchen.






Then we found this unexpected pole inside the wall.  Now we had a problem because this pole was cemented into the ceiling and floor and was not coming out.  We decided to make a column out of the pole to hide it's ugliness.  I needed that cabinet for storage so we decided to make an island out of it.

Then we found this vintage door with the cute door ringer on our Michigan trip.  The minute I saw it I thought it would look great on the island and opening to the kitchen.


Yep it sure did.  Gave a focal point to the wall and still kept the opening to let light into the kitchen.  Again I have to apologize for my pics.  I am getting the new Iphone 12 pro max soon and I hear it takes fabulous pics.


This is what it looks like from the kitchen looking out.

My design assistant agrees.

Hope you all are having a great start to the new week.
Hugs,
Kris

  20. Wow, Wow, Wow, what an amazing idea. When you guys discovered that ugly pole I knew you'd end up doing something spectacular and you sure did. We have a weird wall between our kitchen and living room that might be getting a makeover now, hmmmm. :-)

  24. This is such a totally different look Kris. I like how creative you are and the door and opening looks so nice. I like how you decorated it with the swag and the bottles. I hope you two are happy with the way the kitchen looks.

  34. You have great vision! And then Terry makes it happen. What a team! I bet the previous owner of your condo wouldn't believe the "after" of how you've redone the place! Too bad she can't see it.

  35. I'd like to borrow some of your creative brain cells! I would never have thought of that, but it looks so natural next to the pole that you transformed. WOW!
