Hello there, friends. I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely and long holiday weekend. You may remember a while back when I told you about our trip to Portland for the Fourh of July. Well, it turns out that Ryan had some very important stuff happening at work this past week that he could not miss and so we were able to push the trip back to Labor Day. So, I have had a very long and leisurely weekend full of projects. Projects like the table above. About a year ago, Ryan and I went to a yard sale in Venice and a guy named Irwin sold us this incredible door. Which is now serving as our table top in the photo above. Irwin said that the door once hung in Jim Morrison's place on the Venice Beach Walk. In fact, this very door was The Doors' door! Whether the story is true or not is beside the point, I just love the story. It should be noted that the door is one of the coolest I've ever seen so I can imagine that it may have once belonged to Jim. I quite like the original character of this door and I wanted to keep remnants of its former life in tact, so the only touch up I did was to sand out some of the rough edges. I also gave it an exceptional long and thorough bath. I got a custom piece of glass cut downtown for a good price and then searched out a few random chairs to mix it up a bit. In the back against the wall we are using a painted cedar chest as a bench. Oh, and I got those table legs at Ikea. Ryan took this photo at golden hour.
