Spring Blossoms and Cupboard Doors

Look at this crazy camellia. Somebody gave me a start of it several years ago and it has taken off! It used to be red/white varigated but has mutated into a multi color beauty.

Totally different subject now...I picked these cupboard doors up from different places - both free. I especially love the detail on the white one, which is the size of a standard cupboard door. It looks like it might have been on a hutch though. I'd like to do something really special with it but not sure what. How about some suggestions from all you creative bloggers out there!

Here is the small one - nothing really special about it. I can probably figure out several uses for it but again, wouldn't mind some suggestions.

I'm still pondering just what to do with my grandmother's chair and appreciate your suggestions. When I make a decision, I'll let you all know and do a show and tell :)_

Those are great finds--The top one, the taller one would be cute painted a color and then chalkboard paint on the inside panels. The smaller one i love to decoupage a picture on the inside panel, or stencil something cute, and add hooks on the bottom.

I like Becky's idea of the chalkboard on the tall one - maybe part of it with cork and part with chalkboard! And are those blooms from right now? This spring? Oh my gosh, so pretty! Love the touches of hot pink on the white. Maybe it's a sign of what the chair should look like - LOL!


Love those flowers--so pretty!!!
You are as "crazy" as I am--collecting doors, etc!!! I think I would take the tall one and just paint it a pretty color and use it as a backdrop--like behind the sofa--in a corner with a nice tall plant in front of it--you need to show off that "neat" design on it!! the smaller one might make a cute "bulletin" board of some kind--family pictures--maybe some pretty knobs on the bottom to hang things from!!!
Have fun--hugs, Di
