I’m a barn fan. What can I say except that my grandparents had a barn, we built a barn in the midwest, and we have a barn in NH. I love barns.
So, when I visited my friend, Sue, at their newly enhanced and enlarged family home, I was amazed at her daughter’s find and the hard work involved to create these beautiful sliding doors. Are they gorgeous or what?
The doors were found at an architectural salvage company in New England covered in years of crud which was painstakingly removed by Sue’s daughter, Michelle, refinished, hung on steel hardware forged in the USA, and outfitted with original glass door knob, plate, and antique keys.
Many days of hard work were involved in cleaning, staining, and waxing these two doors, but they are beautiful, and the finish is as soft as a baby’s bottom.
This is one of those projects that due to some serious hard work will provide personal satisfaction for this family for many years to come.
Happy Thursday and may your weekend be a good one. 🎃🍁🍎
