my new old door

It's always fun to repurpose an old door
or window.  I have made old windows into mirrors
and bulletin boards and have hung the unique ones
just for decoration.
Two salvaged doors like the one below have become
entrances to our barn and henhouse.
This one, found some time ago, was in
exceptional condition, but at first I wasn't sure
exactly where it was to end up...

then I saw that it would be the perfect replacement
for the solid wood door between the front hall
and laundry room.  Both spaces were short on natural
light, so this door is perfect ~ both areas
seem a bit brighter now...

    That is an awesome idea!  My husband wants to keep the door between house and laundry closed, but I prefer it open.  Maybe this would be a compromise for us.

    I have done the same in a house we once lived in.  I love being able to see in and let the light shine through.  Especially if someone might be entering from the other side....no surprises!  LOL

  12. And it encourages me to keep my laundry neat as anyone entering the front door into the foyer can see down this hallway!

  18. Thanks Kathleen. A lot of the time our laundry room doors are open, but when the machines are running I often like to keep them shut.
