Details on our New Front Doors

So hands down, the number one question I have been asked about our front porch makeover is, “Where did you get your front doors?!”

I’m so glad you all love them as much as I do!!!

These doors were an unexpected blessing in this whole transformation.  You see, I have always loved double wood doors on houses.  If you just look at my front doors board on Pinterest, you will totally see.

The problem is that all of the ones I loved were way out of our price range.  I was hoping to find some old wooden doors to use, but the problem with them is that many times they are not as energy efficient.  We needed some doors that could keep the cold air out in the winter and the hot weather out in the summer. 

Our friend, Rob, owns a local building company, {the same place I was going to have my new office,} and he just happened to show Cy some doors that a customer had returned because they didn’t like them.  Cy’s jaw dropped because they were exactly the type of doors that we were wanting for our front porch!


These doors were way out of our price range, but since they were returned, Rob let us have them for a third of the cost. 

It was still more than what we really wanted to pay, but we knew it was too good of a deal to pass up, ya know?  So we re-allocated some money from one project to another and made it work, and I am so glad we did!

We stained them one light coat a dark walnut by MinWax, and added the Schlage handle set from Lowe’s.

My favorite part of the doors is the glass.  It lets a ton of light in, but still provides privacy.  The funny thing is…I think it was the glass that the original buyer didn’t like.   Ha!  Oh, well…to each his own. :)

The company we got our doors from is called Elite Building Products.  Ask for Rob Blakeman, the owner, when you call, and tell him I sent you. :)  (Disclosure:  I am NOT getting a cut from any sales he makes from this post.  I just wanted to give y’all his information.  He is a super friendly guy to work with and does great work!)
