i embarked on an adventure in search of an old door to hang in our new house for the school room. it’s one of those ideas that i’ve had in my head for a long time and when i would come across old doors i’d say “oh, that one would be great” or “love that!” but never actually made the purchase.
well the time has come. the trim carpenters are working in the school room now and needed a door to be able to case the doorway. sometimes i just need a deadline.
i went downtown to a salvage store because i knew they had a “basement of doors”. literally. take a look.
this picture times five should give you a pretty good idea of what i was up against.
thankfully, they were organized by type. i wanted one with glass. so i went to the “door’s with glass” section.
there was this one. gorgeous. divided glass, panels, super heavy.
hmmm….then there was this one. single pane of glass (which is what i wanted). not rotting away (bonus).
