Thursday Doors

I am a sucker for a barn door or any kind of door that is hung like a barn door. It calls to my ‘Yankee’ spirit, and I’m always intrigued not only by the door but the hardware.

So, when a good friend from northern Maine, and I mean picture the Canadian border, sent me a photo of a great shed door it caused me to smile. I’m thinking the wood and hardware on that door could tell us quite the story.

It’s nice to have friends who not only understand my Thursday Door addiction, but also provide inventory from places I may never have an opportunity to visit. πŸšͺ

  4. I love when people send me their doors, too, Judy. We have lots of old wood that came out of our house we’re trying to recycle – what’s left will keep us warm in the winter.

    There’s a home for sale in an upscale area here that’s really kind of ordinary, but the realtor keeps emphasizing that the master bedroom features “an authentic sliding barn door!!!!!” Before your blog educated me, I would not have recognized what a charming selling point this could be! Haven’t seen the ad for awhile, so I imagine the barn door has been sold – along with the house surrounding it! πŸ™‚

    • Barn doors on fancy hardware are sure a hot item today. They seem to be using them on closets and bathrooms with one door sometimes doing duty for both rooms. Interesting how things get hot, but then years down the road you can judge how old something is by the choices made by the owner. πŸ™‚

    What a door! We had a similar one on the door of the carriage house at the old farmhouse where I grew up.

  8. I’m assuming the materials for this door have been recycled. It looks great.

    I too love sliding barn doors. I will always stop for a look – if not a photo!

  10. Those look like war wounds on the left door. I like the two different patterns. Happy Thursday, Judy.

    Your comment about your friends have me thinking – I probably need to be more vocal about my “need” (haha) of doors! Great barn door, Judy!

    Track doors have become trendy for indoor use, I’ve noticed. But the whole house will know when you get us in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Roooolllll open, then back. πŸ˜‰

    As you say … oh the stories that barn door could tell!

    I have to wonder if the door was purposefully distressed, or simply wore that way over time. I’m thinking that someone is a budding artist. Are those shingles to the right of the door? Beautiful contrast.

  16. That is a cool door! How cool you have friend enablers! Much better than those that think you need an intervention. 😜

    I’ve never seen anything like this door — and I love the woven look of the other half. What personality things can have!

    That’s a marvel in texture and story. I love how people give us doors. Yes. So thoughtful. Better than many tangible gifts.

    • I swear barn door hardware just calls to me. I suppose a doctor in some field would say it was because of the time I spent in my grandparents’ barn as a child, and that is probably when it started. We had a barn in KS and have one here. I really do love barns. πŸ™‚
