French Door Dreams... A Great Friday Find!!!

Look what my hubby just bought me! I know... some women like diamonds, long stemmed roses, and  fancy dinners. Me? I like old doors with glass knobs, wild flowers, and a big pot of homemade soup (which I'm more than happy to make while he drives the two hours there and back to pick up these beauties!!!)


I've had a vision to create an accent between my dining room and living room. I wanted to create a partial "wall", but still have the open feeling between the two rooms. There used to be french doors there, and it just triggered this wonderful dream in my mind... But to find the door was another challenge! They are either new or expensive... or in horrible condition. I've been eyeing these on Craig's List, and thought for sure they'd be snagged before I could get to them. But divine providence and my dear hubby made it all happen :) And for the price of what most folks would charge for just those gorgeous glass knobs! Now, that's a find :D

I really hope it all comes together the way I see it. I'm going to attempt to post the process.

great find.. We bought a set also on craigs list not too long ago for my daughter to do the same thing with in her apartment. But she never did it!
happy Friday!

We haven't decided yet which door will serve as the accent between the two rooms... probably the one that's 3 panels across. But the other will be used as a wall decor... Maybe turn it into a huge shadow box??? Looking forward to discovering what they can become!
