I am quite sure y'all are tired of hearing about my antique door project. But this one is a little different, so I think you will be ok with my sharing it:-)
As you can see from this photo last fall when I switched the dining table to this spot, there was a regular leaded glass door here. It only goes to a side porch, and no one ever uses it to enter or exit the house, so I had wanted to switch it with an extra french door I had, but thought it might be too much work.
After restoring and hanging 12 antique interior doors last month, I knew I could handle this one, and oh what a change it made in this room!
It was not really a difficult process as both doors were the exact same size. All I had to do was reverse the door knob and deadbolt locks, then move the strike plates, which turned out to be the most tedious part, but not all that difficult.
I am in love with the change and only wish I had done it sooner. Since these windows overlook our creek and woods, it just brings more of the beautiful outdoors in.
I have also changed a few things around for summer and brought in some beautiful peonies and roses from my mother's garden. Their scent is just heavenly.
I actually grew this one myself:-) I love how it coordinates with the color of the silk Chinese runner.
I am still loving my 1965 radio, and we actually have it on most of the day if we are here playing classical music from our local NPR station.
My dad recently found his old Ansco camera and knew I would love it.
I really do like how this space is taking on its own personality and evolving over time. The door change has made a big difference. Now if Luis would just let me knock out a wall and raise the ceiling:-)
Thanks for stopping by:-)
