Oh So Fabulous: Closet Doors.

Soon to be the bedroom closet doors.

 Last weekend when Decorating co-captain Linda and I were painting the bedroom,
she pointed out that the closet door was much shorter than the average door. 

(In a previous post, I mentioned that we painted it grey so it would blend into the room.)
Which would be fine if we were ordinary people.
But we are not ordinary people. 

We named it The Hobbit Door
Henceforth, throughout the week anything weird that happened -
we blamed on the Hobbit that lives in my newly noticed short closet. Clearly.

Linda decided the short hobbit closet simply would not do.
To remedy this, she offered a set of vintage doors
she had stored in her garage...that would be just perfect for the spot. 

Won't they be fabulous?!
They are heavy old suckers. They are leaning up where they will go.
Linda and I dragged them out of her garage in 14 degree weather.
That's commitment.

Don't all darling friends......
just happen to have the perfect set of chippy old doors
stored in the garage... and they give them to you?

Of course, it helps to have the super handy Cabinet Maker Husband
who can widen the opening and make a new door jamb.
(I have once again bribed him sufficiently with a steak dinner and carrot cake.)

"What's one more project, Honey? Dear? More cake?"

Seriously, I am spoiled beyond belief.

  2. I can't wait to see them installed!!!! They are going to look so cool! You've inspired me to go hunting for some for my house!

  3. Ooh, those doors are going to look great! I can hardly wait to see them up!

  4. so is this for the GUEST ROOM - so it will be ALL READY when I come to move in??! :)

    can't wait to see it all done - get slave drivin!

  5. I knew those doors would be totally fabulous in there! They were just patiently waiting for the perfect project.

    Can't wait to see the finished product.

  6. I am all swelled up. I love those doors. I want some yellowed doors. I found two perfectly chippy ones in a little hamlet named Stewart, MS. I finally after years of asking found out who owned the abandoned house that they were on. But then came the kicker..."he will burn it down before he will sell any of it to anyone." What kind of crap is that? He stole my pleasure that day for sure. And the next time I ride through there, I expect to see bare land where the house was. Just like the two that he owned that were beside the yellow door house. They were still smoldering the last time I was through there BEFORE I spoke of my wish for the yellow doors. Such a shame that people cannot find beauty and value in something old and crusty.
    Love your blog! Susan

  7. the doors are perfection, but you must really realize how lucky you are to have a hubby who will do all this stuff.....i have all the ideas, but no muscle around...:(
