Vintage Estate Sale Chippy Door With Mirror

November 4, 2019

I'm always on the lookout for cool vintage finds to use as decoration on my electric fireplace mantel, and this chippy estate sale "door" with mirror and hooks fit that bill perfectly. I call it a door but is it actually supposed to be a window?

I say that because it appears to have "panes" of glass (which are actually panes of mirror) but it also has something that looks like a rusted metal door handle, as well as rusty hinges. So what does that make it? A hybrid door-window? I give up. All I know is that I did a happy dance when I found it at an estate sale and it was actually within my budget. Here you can see the suction cups I use to hang my many wreaths.

Another feature of the piece looks like drawers with hooks on the outside. If I actually hung this on the wall I could use it as a drop station for things like keys and reusable shopping  bags.

While I love that the hooks make it functional, I just can't get over the crazy-busy chippiness going on!

I think its incredible vintage shabbiness speaks for itself.  


A rusty metal door handle adds incredible charm to the piece.

And the combination of rusty hinges and chippy paint just blows me away. I could have shared this special find in one of my many Thrill of the Hunt posts, but I felt that it was just too spectacular to share billing with any other find. 

It's really heavy and huge (around 4' tall by 20'' wide) and is just the right size to fit the corner above the fireplace perfectly. TIP: I always place Dollar Tree  felt pads onto the back of anything I lean against the wall. That way it doesn't mess up the beautiful paint job. I can't wait to start decorating it for Christmas!   

Well, that's it for today, friends!
