Adding Antique Doors

Almost one year ago exactly to the day, I pinned the image below. I even noted on the image that it’s *exactly* what I envisioned for some interest/privacy between our living and dining room (soon to be office). I love the texture of the doors, the fact that they’re fairly rustic up against the traditional details of the room. Just my jam.

Since then, I’ve been scouting for doors every where I go. I finally came back around to some I’ve been eyeing for some time in one of my favorite local shops. Behold:


Aren’t they beautiful? If you don’t agree, please don’t tell me because you’ll break my heart. They’re antique and have the most beautiful green finish and raised panel details.

I asked to borrow a tape measure while I was in the other day and came home to really measure. Turns out they’re just a bit too tall to hang the way I originally hoped. But I could probably figure a way to put them on hinges to open and close, which might work out better actually.

I might only be dreaming, but can’t you just picture it?

  1. Those are some amazing doors that you just don’t see everyday. The paint is in the perfect state of chippyness and the embossed detail is incredible. They look European. Did the antique store give you provenance?

    • I could be wrong, but I could swear it had said they were Chinese. I remember being really surprised since the panel detailing didn’t strike me as oriental. I really should just grow up and look at the price tag and description next time I’m in 🙂

  2. Those are gorgeous! If they’ve been there for so long, maybe they’d be willing to negotiate a little. It never hurts to ask! Good luck! 🙂

  3. Those doors are beautiful! You did the right thing going back to those. Can’t wait to see exactly what you do with them.
