One of my favorite things to do is use doors and windows from the "old" house in my decor.
This oak door replaced the white tongue and groove one I had here last fall and was a great place to hang stockings during Christmas since we don't have a fireplace.
After I took the stockings down, I wanted something "light-ish" since it's so dark, and decided to use this vintage cathedral print from my great grandmother.
I have been layering on top of old windows for several years, and have not gotten tired of it yet. It's a great way to make something small look larger.
I propped up some old family photos on this one, which is lined with sheet music behind the glass.
I have changed the art out several times on this door and usually have this painting by a relative hanging. I have always loved the colors, and they work so well with the blue walls.
Then I decided to try this larger one, painted by my late uncle, Rex Thrower, whose paintings have been in the Custer Battlefield museum. I like both so I'm not sure which one will stay. It's easy to change them, though.
I had a needlepoint there for a while last summer.
Since I have so many of these old doors, I put one on my back porch last summer with old tags on a plate rack.
I have found doors and windows to be a wonderful way to add interest and extra layers, and it really gives me more options -- especially with smaller artwork which would be too small used alone.
And I have used them everywhere...literally.
And just in case you are wondering where the white door went that started out here by the buffet last winter...
It's now here in the master bathroom water closet:-)
Like I said, I have these old doors and windows everywhere:-)
