9. Classroom maps. Old-fashioned pull-down classroom maps add a studious note to a room. Try one in the home office, study or dining room. Just don’t expect to use a vintage map as a teaching tool … they can be quite outdated!
love the old map idea, might try to get ones

Country antique meets new and improved ideas
nice for a old home renovation
Use our old dresser for basement vanity
Possibly use old dry sink for powder room
Interested in ideas for vanity conversion that include integrating sink's bottom with an
portion of the base. Unless it’s a true antique, there is no need to fear altering an aged piece — that’s the beauty, and the enjoyment, of upcycling old furniture.
The owner of this bathroom was lucky enough to find a fantastic old pine buffet that was converted to a vanity. The patina and history of this piece make it so much more engaging than something new and mass produced,

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open
cut down a bit and with crown molding added on the top and bottom and oil rubbed bronze hooks and towel bar. Could be quite simple to make. I have an old Queen Anne door I've been thinking of using like that!

are amazing! They look like wide plank reclaimed heart pine floors. Many of these floors are sawn from the beams of old factories and warehouses. The lengths and widths are from the old world long leaf pine. It had much more resin and was more dense than today's common yellow pine. Let me know if you
using Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint a lot lately & it covers everything. A "homemade" recipe is found online. Then cover with a glaze, etc. your post is old so you're probably finished with your kitchen.
I painted over oak, cherry, pine, mahogany, walnut and some manmade materials. I'm always pleased that this paint or my home made mixture, covers very well. You can find the product or the homemade version online: Annie Sloan chalk paints. Online classes posted by bloggers

Why not make better use of them? Repurposing a room and redesigning within your existing home’s footprint is always cheaper than building an addition.Next, make a list of the rooms you wish you had in your home. Compare the two lists, and see if anything can have a dual purpose. Can you live without

What kind of paint was used on the old door? Chalkboard spray paint?
It is custom, as mentioned above. That is the beauty of it. They had an old door and painted it with chalkboard paint. Then you can write whatever you like on it. Great idea and great quote of Dr. Seuss.
Just the little quart of chalkboard paint you can get at Lowe's or Home Depot. We didn't even prime, because we wanted the age of the door to show through. The door is about 80 years old. It was in the garage of the homeowner's house.
theres something about chalk graffiti that just says home to me
Love the old door painted with chalkboard paint and then the cute dr suess
Old door with chalkboard paint. Interesting idea
chalk board old doors downstairs - do it in a cool color - put in a location for people to write their ideas down (ie bathroom)

Modern addition to an old cottage

Houzzer medox73 lives. “In my country it’s a rule always to remodel the old building to its former glory, but any additional building has to be modern,” medox73 says. “The idea behind it is that people have to distinguish which one is old and which one is new. It’s normal to see here 1800s-era buildings with
