Vintage doors


I love this use of vintage doors, what a great way to have them be functional and beautiful by mounting them on barn door style hardware.  Totally cool.  Not to mention the color... perfection.

I love the doors from Eleoquence below.. so so cool!
What do you think, do you like the true vintage mix that these doors give in a space?

I love those vintage doors and any vintage window as well. I use vintage doors in my front window vignettes to arrange draperies and fabric around. They make impressive backdrops! Gorgeous photos!!

Great Post. That first picture is wonderful. I love the idea of bringing barn door style hardware into a residential application--very cool.

The aged patina of reclaimed doors is hard to beat.

All the best, Cindy

I love the first door. We have some old doors up in our garage attic that have been up there for years. I'll have to check them out now!
