Our house has been quiet on the project list lately but that is about to change!!! Since we have finished the pantry ,I have been on the lookout for a special door.In my original vision I wanted an old rustic door hung on a barn door track. I searched Craigslist occasionlly and finally found a door I really liked.It was located by a town not far from where Paloma lives.I emailed the owner but never heard back.I fell in love with that door and especially the price(it was $40).Fast forward to last weekend,we went to a flea market that Paloma has been wanting us to go to by her house. I specifically wanted to find a door for the pantry and really didn't want to spend over $40 since I had found one for that price before. When going to a flea market you never know what to expect.One man's junk is another man's treasure,lol!!! At first I didn't see any doors and almost gave up hope.My husband said we would probably find some good stuff torward the back in an out of the way section and he was so right!!! I saw a pale pink door that caught my eye!!!At first I thought it was too narrow for the door but there were two narrow doors that almost matched. Originally these doors were parlor doors but the lady had painted one door pink and added chicken wire to a window that had broke.The other door was striped of its original paint but had both the frosted windows in tact. She was selling the pink door for $55 and the other one $45 but since I wanted both doors she would sell them to us for $50.So I bought the set for $50. I was happy ,since these doors are narrow we will be putting two doors in the pantry. I am always impressed at how the universe provides and brings to me things that are better than I have envisioned!!!!For mother's Day we will put up the doors!! I am super excited to have the final jewel to the pantry.I have decided I am going to add a little trim to the pink door around the chicken wire and leave the other door raw. Here are photos of the doors.
