Crash!!!

I wasn't planning on writing a post today. I'm on a roll putting away the last bits of Christmas and getting the house together.

Then I heard it. A crash! I knew exactly what had happened. I didn't want to look.

And there it was. I had an unexpected before and after to share with you.

Before.....




And after.....



Need a closer look.....

















What happened? The nail came out of the door. Note to self, use a screw next time.


It could have been worse. It looks like it slid straight down the door and most of the broken ornaments are on the bottom and the side that probably hit the doorknob.


Imagine if it had fallen forward when it hit the floor.


It can be fixed.


Megan, we'll need to schedule another craft day.


And that's a good thing!

I must say that you're taking it very well. If it was here my cats would be learning a few new words.

Oh my. I lost one of mine at a show. The wind took it over and all I could think was, "My vintage babies!" So sorry.

So glad that all the ornaments didn't break, and it is fixable, plenty of time before next Christmas. Maybe use a cup hook instead of regular screw.

Hope to see it back up in about 350 more days.

I have often wondered about these beautiful ball wreaths for this very reason. I thought it I ever made one, I would use the unbreakable kind. But then they would not be vintage!

Charm Bracelet Diva said...

I think I would have cried right then and there! All your hard work! It's gorgeous, and I'm sure that with a little TLC you two will have it looking as good as new!

Laura at Ms. Smartie Pants said...

Oh no! I guess you have plenty of time between now and next season! Sorry!

Into Vintage said...

Ouch -- I think I heard that here in Oregon. Happy to know it can be repaired and I love that door!

PS I'm going to try your chalk paint recipe!

Jeannie said...

Oh no! I'm glad it can be fixed.
