I really love what Rose did with this repurposed door. It is such a simple idea, but she turned it into such a practical piece. Please leave Rose some nice comments below! I know it would really make her smile! :)
I inadvertently did not publish the finished photos of Rose’s project. I’m very sorry Rose, that I forgot that you spent much more time on this project. I liked it the way it was, but after you finished it…. it is FABULOUS!
Okay… now ya’ll gotta leave Rose some love!

If you would like to see more of Rose’s finds and projects, she has a blog, check it out here.
