Chippy Screen Door

Hi Everyone,

I spotted this old, chippy screen door at a garage sale a couple weeks ago.
It was only $6.00 so I snatched it right up!
It's adding a little charm to this corner by our computer desk.

This old pie tin is the perfect accessory don't you think?
I think the wording on it ~  "Blue Bird Pies" ~ is especially appropriate!

Don't you love how old pieces like this just add so much
character and charm to your home?


I think they're just so special!


  1. I definitely would have brought this home with me! It's SO cute and looks good in this spot. great job, JoAnne!


  2. Definitely adds charm to that corner. And I love the bench and shelf you painted and added to the blank space in your home. Will be very useful and looks great, as does the makeover on your kitchen cupboard. I've been thinking to do the same to some pieces around here. Just need to find time to make a mess and paint. :) Have a fabulous Friday. Tammy

  3. I love the tin on it! It looks very breezy! andrea@townandprairie

  6. What a great idea, I have seen one real similiar to this but just didnt know what to do with it. Looks like I will be going back to pick up that old screen door of mine..thanks for the inspiration!!

  7. JoAnne it looks amazing. I love the pin tin too. The screen door adds such a great touch a chippy beautifulness to your room. What a great find.

  8. I love old screens. They make wonderful decor items. I have an old chippy red paint screen from a window that I use for a photo prop.

  9. Just the right touch ! Looks great !

  10. Fantabulous!! I love it. I found you through Kim at Savvy Southern Style. I am the friend she met for lunch in Asheville. I live here. If you ever come back this way I would be happy to meet you and take you to the tobacco barn!

    Last year I had a blogger brunch and Kim plus 14 other people came, and then we went antiquing all over Asheville including the tobacco barn.

    Come visit my blog when you have time. I just did a Kim post!

  11. This is darling~ I love your chippilicious screen door!! Thanks for linking it up at Feathered Nest Friday!

  12. I love the use of the pie tin in that way! How original! The screen was a great find as well.

  13. Great find! That screen will come in handy for lots of decorating props. I bet we see that again in the near future.

  14. I would have snapped that up in a second too! It is SO cute and I love it in the corner with the plate on it! You could hang a wreath on it too, and change it out seasonally! Endless possibilities with this piece! LOVE IT!
