Foto Friday – Front Doors

I love the front door of our house. It is the original wood, has a slot for letters, three little windows (and a peep hole right next to the window, so when you look through you can see the person on the other side) – problem is that it lets in and out all kinds air. Last winter when we moved in there was a serious draft. So now, we begin our search for the perfect front door. Most of the doors at the hardware store I find boring, or what I picture an old lady would choose. We’re looking for something classic, probably with some windows for light and some kind of defining feature…maybe a large knocker, pattern, or some kind of rich colour. Here are a few examples of ones that I like so far (have no idea where to find them though so the search begins!)

Have a great weekend!

p.s. we have some plans for our old door as well. we found an artisan in our neighbourhood who makes furniture pieces (kitchen blocks, coffee tables, sofa tables, etc.) from old doors – he said he’d take ours, combine it with some reclaimed wood to make us a special piece for our home. we’ll have to save a little for that one- but would love to incorporate the old door in our place somehow!
