I just scored 2 great old doors....now what?

mmebradyJune 10, 2010

Hi! at the risk of repeating questions, I'm looking for ideas about how to use 2 great old doors I just got from freecycle. Both have glass panes in the top half. One I may remove the glass, because the panes are in a separate piece, so it may end up a door with an open space at the top. The other has the glass set into the door frame, so it will stay with the door. Ideas?????

Yup, calamity, I LOVE my door arbor...no pics yet this yr but the Mandevilla vines are planted again & the Knock-out Rose has 1 bloom & the White Cleome is growing taller...not blooming yet! Here's last yrs pics, brady...& GREAT SCORE...whatever you do with them! Jeanne S.

And the green stained glass butterfly is a gift from purplemoon, our inspiration album lady!

Here's the old link that tells about making it from June of last yr. Have fun with whatever you decide to do!

Check out Doodys 9 recent post "Window" too. If you are a little artistic, or know someone who is, you could paint a lovely garden scene on the window. I also adore Jeannespines arbor above. I'm looking for doors and windows now! Thanks for your inspirations!
