well the time has come. the trim carpenters are working in the school room now and needed a door to be able to case the doorway. sometimes i just need a deadline.
i went downtown to a salvage store because i knew they had a "basement of doors". literally. take a look.
thankfully, they were organized by type. i wanted one with glass. so i went to the "door's with glass" section.
there was this one. gorgeous. divided glass, panels, super heavy.
another one, very similar. sooooo pretty!
hmmm....then there was this one. single pane of glass (which is what i wanted). not rotting away (bonus).
this one went home with me! can you see all the pencil scribbling on the right side? it was meant to be for the school room. once i clean it all up, i'm sure some day the pencil scribbles will be back. :)
i also really like how the glass is set a little lower than you typically see. the door knob is set lower too.
i picked out some old black hinges, screws and door knob.
so here is the new old door to our school room! i would love to add some etched glass title to the glass.
maybe "school room" or "school". we'll see :)
