The Magnificence Of Massive, Old Doors!

 

Isn’t there just something so cool about old doors?  They have a definite character to them and all sorts of lines and crevices that seem to tell a story – kind of like people I guess you could say.  They have a certain “stateliness” about them; a distinguished regal quality – like a handsome, weathered patriarch that sits back quietly yet looms large, full of history, full of tales and life and secrets – that just floods a space with character, interest and well…….major oomph and coolness!  They can be used as exterior doors, interior doors, headboards, tables, architectural pieces or even just leaning against a wall somewhere. 

Check out these incredible pieces from Grassroots.

 Wouldn’t you love to know the history of these doors?  Where did they come from?  What kind of people walked through them?  Was it a church?  A mansion?  Some type of fortress?   How old are they exactly?????

Do you know the story behind these six panel doors above and below?  Notice the cross on the front?  They were originally created to display the cross for Christians.  Also called Cross and Open Bible doors or Christian Doors to denote that Christians occupied the home or building.  Cool, huh?!

 Oh my goodness!  How incredible are these?!  Wish I had a house big enough to have these as my front doors.  These could also actually be attached to custom built shelving to create an old looking armoire or interesting wall unit.  How awesome would that be?

 These would look great on or in a Mediterranean or Tuscan home.  Don’t they look so…….distinguished?

Nothing creates and adds more character and interest to a space than something like these amazing doors

Wouldn’t you like to add this kind of character and definition to your place?  (If you need smaller doors they’re out there, too!)

Why not bring some of this magnificence to your own home – and let their weathered, worn faces tell a story for you and yours????!!!!!!

Happy Decorating!
