I have inherited almost 40 antique doors! Yes...40!! My dear cousin, Clint and his sweet wife Kim wanted to get rid of their "junk" from their barn. Ummm...huh? Doors? Antique doors? Doors that have been in the barn for 40 years and they were at least 40yr old doors when they were put in there? Uh...YEAH! I'll help ya out.....matter a fact....I'll help you out like that ANY TIME! Haha!! Needless to say I was overwhelmed with joy and gratitude to get their "junk" as they called it, out of their barn! So, over a couple of weekends and with the help of some kind souls, I got every last one of them! Even the broken ones! "Broken ones? Why broken ones?" Ohhhh just you wait and see my friend, just wait and see!
Now...what to do with 40 doors! Well, half of them are "different". I knew from the moment that I laid eyes on them that they were not just your every day run of the mill doors. This was because #1. They are
Now remember I said "half of them are different"? Which means the other half are more your run of the mill
Yep, the dirt-dobbers had fun with some of these doors! It's taking a lot of elbow grease to get this stuff off!
This is one of the long pocket doors. They look so much better once they are cleaned up! See the wheels at the top?
I have several more pictures but I'd like to show ya what I found online...the pics of headboards! Let me just say that when I was searching and I started getting to the pics that had beautiful chandeliers in them....I started hearing the song off of Ferris Bueller's Day Off in my head......"Oh yeahhhhh, ...chick, chika, chickahhh....Oh yeahhhhh" Hahaha! For those of you that have seen it, you know what I'm talkin' bout!
Ok, 11 Headboards. (If you click on the link on the last one, it will take you to someone else's blog that has about 13 more headboard ideas on their blog!)
I do believe I have a door just like this....window missing and all! ;-)
Love the painted panels. I could definitely do that for ya!
Wow! $1,200 on Etsy. Gorgeous!
I believe this one is my favorite picture but it's because of the chandelier with the headboard! Nice mix of rustic elegance
Annnnnd last but not least.....
