I found this door while browsing online looking for a salvage place. I was looking for unusual items for our home as we were rebuilding.

I saw this on a facebook page & immediately fell in love. I read that it had wood rot on the bottom, but was ok with it since I'd be using indoors.

I needed to order the hardware in order to hang the door. And, as I was speaking with the rep of the company, he mentioned it'd be best for us to have a roller stay on the bottom to keep the door from swinging out.

I ordered all of the hardware. The straps had to be adjusted just a little to ensure they sat correctly on the door.

We hung the door before I started working on transforming it to make sure it was good. Once given the go ahead...the major work lied ahead.

Remember I mentioned wood rot. I need to address that issue, but I also knew I wanted to change the color.

There was layer upon layer of paint. I sanded...sanded...sanded and sanded some more. I didn't need all of the paint to come off because I do love a chippy paint look.
