New Use for an Old Door
I picked up this door a couple of months ago when I was out picking for The HomeShed, and I fully intended to sell it.
But…then, I moved the cabinet that had been in this corner to another part of the house. And all of the sudden, the corner was so empty and the room felt off balance.
And so, the door has found a new home, nestled in next to my beloved turquoise chairs.
Indulge me for a minute – let me tell you why I love this door so much…
- The dark wood and straight lines add some masculinity to the room. I love a good, frilly, shabby chic room, but let’s face it. I live with three boys. Our home will never truly reflect “us” if it’s too feminine. My knock-off pouf has the same effect – add a little masculinity to the feminine wing-backs.
- The hinges are so beautiful and detailed. Have you ever seen anything more lovely?
- The style reminds me of the door on my classroom my first year teaching (before all the antique doors had to be replaced with new, bullet-proof doors. And yes, this was pre-Newtown. School safety is not a new thing.)
What do you think? Do you love the “new” door as much as I do?
