Barn Doors … and a kitchen update.

In our Farm Road House we used Barn Door Hardware to hang the doors to our SunRoom.

We wanted the room to be separate, but didn't want the doors to be in the way when open.

We searched for old doors to use, but just didn't find exactly what we were looking for.

So we bought stock doors from Home Depot and painted them up.

I loved the look and feel of the real barn hardware.

If you follow me on IG you know that we made a trip to Kennebunk, Maine last week to look for old doors for our ProjectDownSize house.

One of my favorite places … I blogged about it here.

We loved the barn style doors so much that we are going to replicate them in our kitchen.

But this time we want something different … 

Size was a major factor … we either needed one large door at 52" wide or 2 smaller doors that would could hinge together to get to the right size.

I came a cross this photo a few months ago and loved the feel of these doors … 

A little Fancier than I wanted … but a look to consider.

Here's what we found … 

52 1/2" wide.  Perfection.
An original Wood Panel from an 1823 House … 

It has the most beautiful soft green patina … the original paint color.  

She needs a little scrub and then she'll be ready for some accessorizing.

Her new Hardware!

Hopefully this beauty will be covering the new pantry shelves very soon!

Happy Monday my friends!

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Room at a Time.
