Antique Doors Repurposed




It always fascinates me when craftsmen can take a portion of antique wood and marry it to new wood seamlessly........the results are an amazing reproduction to fit all needs. In this case, to house a flat screen television to lift out of a credenza, or hide behind armoire doors.




While antiques are always preferred in my design world, there are often times when a custom made piece is more appropriate to the scale or room feel............we're making two new credenzas to house a 64" and another for a 42" flat screen HD tv's......pics on those when they are finished!




These antique doors will be the front of a newly-designed cabinet at some point....

I love them all especially the distressed white ones. Can't wait to see the finished products. Hope things have settled down a bit for you. We miss your daily inspirational posts.

WELL I BOUGHT A PAIR OF FRENCH ANTIQUE DOOR SET ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO. I use them as a screen when my husband applied hardware to them. Fantastic looking!

The talent never stops.
Houses to homes, now our imagination gone wild on film.
You lucky girl...
