I am soooo excited to share with you a great deal we got on some old doors!
Ya’ll know that I love an old cottage/farmhouse feel in my home, and one of the ways I plan on creating that feel in our new addition is by adding old architectural elements.
The easiest way to do that is with old doors.
I love the look of old farmhouse doors.
So imagine my surprise when my husband came home from the Habitat Store with this stash!
I about peed my pants!
These babies are gorgeous!
And to make things even more exciting…guess how much he paid for these?…
Can you believe it?!
He was at the Habitat store picking up some used French Patio Doors for our master bedroom, and an antique door (the solid brown door in the picture below) for $100.00. (The same patio doors sell for between $350-400 at Lowe’s!)
He ended up coming home with four more antique doors for free! I explain the story behind them in my video…it’s a pretty cool story.
The white 5 panel wood doors will be used upstairs in the boys’ rooms.
They are exactly the type of doors I was looking for. Look how much these sell for on ebay…
And some sell for even more than that!
My favorite door is this beautiful one…
This door is close to 100 years old. Look at the beautiful detail on it…
We are hoping to use this door in our master bedroom, either as the bedroom door, or the bathroom door. We are considering frosting the glass.
What would you use this door for?
And would you sand and paint the 5 panel white doors a new coat of white paint, or would you strip the paint and show the natural wood color?
I am trying to decide what to do. If you have any great inspirational pictures of old doors, please share them with me. :)
Anyway, here is the video I took the day we picked up the doors. I was very excited about our “score” and had to share it with you. (If you cannot see this video in your reader, please click on my post title to view it on my blog.)

Hope you can come!
**Because I feel like these doors were a simple blessing from God, who cares about every detail of our life, I am linking my post up to Richella’s linky party, Grace Imparted.
