Love for Old Doors

I posted a while back pictures of a couple old doors that I found in our barn. I love old doors. I think its because I know all of them has a story. No telling how many people have walked through the doors.

The one I have been working on we have come to the conclusion that it was a closet door. Years ago it hung in an old farm house that was located on our farm. Its not very tall is the reason why. My oldest son would have to bend down to fit through it.

This is what the door looked like before I did anything to it. I thought it was in really good shape. I know this door is over 50 years old.

I could not wait to get my hands on it. To start sanding and painting. Then more sanding.

This is what it looks like after looks of paint and sanding. I scruffed up the edges to bring the old look back to it.

It looks totally different now.

I love it in our house. It turned out wonderful. I added a wreath to it to give it some color.

I am not sure if I am finished with it or not. I may add some writing to it.

I hope your Wednesday is filled with love and happiness!

  1. FANTASTIC! I love old doors too. My desk, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE, is an old door... I currently have a partially glass paneled vintage door in my garage completely stumping me of anything creative to do with it and frankly- it's KILLING me!
