Old Door Love

Just wanted to make a quick post of this adorable door.  It was saved from a beautiful old farmhouse that was built in the 1800's.  It was being destroyed and a friend of mine just happened to get there in time to rescue a few of the doors.  When he found out that I was in love with old doors and would actually use them, he generously gave them to me.  You should have seen my happy dance. 

I installed 3 of these beautiful heavy wood doors in my farmhouse.   This little beauty is only 5 ft. high but I was determined to find a place for it.  It had been painted white many moons ago and as I was cleaning the grime away, the paint started to go with it.  Only a little of the white remains but I consider everything about this door a work of art.  Zoom in to check out the door knob.  It's an old wooden thread spool.  In order to maintain as much of the original appearance of this door as possible, I put a clear wax over the wood.  I'll feature my other doors at a later date.
