Door Backdrop & Cloche Centerpiece

When our home was built in 2000, there were two bi-fold type doors left in the basement.  They do not match.  I have always wanted to find a use for them, and thought about trying to find a third one and making a screen.  Recently I painted one of them with home made chalk paint (white).  I didn't do anything else to it.  I finally brought it upstairs and found a little nook for it. 

 I propped it behind a small table I had sitting in the corner of the dining room, added my recently made burlap wreath, and hung this tiny embroidered pillow on it.

I'm thinking I will distress it and use some ASCP dark wax on it. 

Another free project!  

I also changed the centerpiece on the dining room table.  I recently bought this runner in its soft pastels.  The cake plate is a purchase from several years ago.   It echoes the blue and pink of the runner.

I kept the white candlesticks which were originally hunter green.

I chose not to put anything under the cloche except the plate, and let the rose be the center of attention.

Have you created any free projects recently?
