(door #1)

Doors...Can you get too many? that too many?

My #1 thinks it is!

Yesterday, while pondering the big question of...should I or shouldn't I?

I was wondering if it would be worth seeing a grown man cry when he found out that I just bought two more amazing doors.

(door #1)

I decided it was worth it, he'd get over it!

I mean, you just can't produce this kind of fabulous chippy paint!

It takes years!

(door #2)

I don't have years.

I have a project in mind and these doors would be perfect!

Before you start to think I'm addicted to doors, I do use them for shows!

They make wonderful backdrops.

(door #2)

But for this project I needed doors with windows, and that's what I found!

Thanks to Sue's husband Joe, who hauled these to my truck, I was able to get these home!

Do you want to see what kind of an estate sale at which I purchased these?

This was a farm sale.

There were a couple of outbuildings as well as things all over the land surrounding the house.

There were many things to see and to find.

I looked at this stack and thought of Frank & Mike.

I wondered if they would have found something great from it.

Well, I drove away with a bunch of items for the upcoming show at Monticello.

I know my friends Sue and Julie as well as another Julie, all from Monticello, found some great items too!

Be sure not to miss the show, you'll be in for a real treat!

Drooling... 12 doors! Come on, Debbie... share the wealth (LOL)! Your doors are gorgeous!! I was looking for vintage doors and windows on my last treasure hunting excursion and couldn't find one... not even one! I'm not giving up, though. ;o)
That estate sale looks awesome! Wish I could be at Monticello to see all of the fabulous things you found. Hope you take lots of pictures for us to see. :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

oh my goodness ... as I looked at the first pic of the yard .. I thought Mike and Frank should come to this coast and pick because of all the dirt and rust and stuff that was there and then as I scrolled down you wrote the same thing I was thinking .. guess antiquers and junkers all think alike!

Good for you, you can never have too many doors and I agree about that dreamy, chippy paint! Happy weekend!

I sure would like to spend some time at that great farm sale, Wow!
Look at all that rusty, crusty stuff. Yum!

I love that door, it doesn't get any better than that one! I like using them in my booth too

I wish I could make it to your sale, but sadly I can't. Hope you do well.

OMG (oh my gosh)
I would have fought you for those, no I wouldn't but I Love them. I hope to see them when I come out to Portland next spring. They will be sold for sure. I am so happy I have found so many places to visit out your way. Monticello is on the list , i read great things about it.
I bet Frank & Mike would love to have been there. I am in love with those young men from American Pickers. Like lots of others.

Oh Debbie, I adore a farm sale. I think I get more of a thrill out of those than any other sale.
No, no, no, you can never have too many doors. Especially when they are as great as these!

I love old doors too, I have one large and one small old cabinet door. Can't wait for your post from the show. I've been hanging on to the small door, trying to come up with a fabulous idea for it, but it just hasn't come to me yet. Maybe you can inspire me! I am also a huge fan of American husband bought me the 1st Season on DVD and we are waiting for the 2nd Season to go on sale!

Cabin and Cottage said...

Yes! I'd be thrilled if I found just a couple at any price! Great score! Jacqueline
