Our neighbor gutted out his Victorian home and had doors sitting ( covered with tarp ) in his back yard ( our alley ) for the last month .................
We were constantly trying to get in touch with him to see if he'd be willing to sell them - but he was never around - or we weren't.
Finally yesterday we were able to chase down his contractor and asked HIM if the owner would be willing to sell ! or 2 -
Long story short - we purchased 4 of them - 2 with glass panes on the upper half - and 2 solid wood !!!
Here's photo's of 1 of them ( the rest are outside )
These are HUGE - 85 inches high !!! ( you can't tell in these photos because our ceilings are very high )
And if this place weren't up for sell - this is the exact spot I would leave it in - ( attached to the wall - a door to nowhere, type of thing )
Suzan says - If we weren't selling - I'd have that door installed in that little niche
John says - What? That's ridiculous
Suzan says - WHY?
John says - Well a door should lead to another room - not a brick wall
Suzan says - Can't you ever just use your imagination? Just every now and then ?
Suzan says - It would be a little quirky design - and I think it would be absolutely charming
John says - I think it would be absolutely stupid.
John says - People would come in and open the door thinking it was another room
Suzan says - WHO is going to walk into our home and start randomly opening doors????
John says - You never know - you just never know..................
Suzan says - anyway it's a moot topic - we're selling
John says - yeah - but you'll probably want to do it somewhere else now................
John says - AND I think a door leading to nowhere is just stupid
Suzan says - I know - you said that already
Look everyone!!! It's already blingified !!!
Suzan says - AND I feel that conversations that lead to nowhere are kind of stupid myself.....................
Besides, don't all doors lead to Paris?
( and he most definitely will NOT get that !!!! )
I've squished them all in just so you have a chance to see them -
Wood letters from Michael's ( I told you they owe me a sponsored post - I went a little crazy with the pumpkin bling and letters )
Who wants to place their bets now?
I WILL have a door or 2 that lead to Paris - mark my words..............
And only I have the magic keys that will let me enter it :)
I think it's time for some lyrics, don't you ?
Just when I believed I couldn't ever ask for more
This ever changing world pushes me through another door...................
( very symbolic for me right now, those lines )
Have a wonderful Friday everyone - may your day be filled with only open doors :)
( FOUR of them - did I mention I have FOUR of them - no Andi and Kris - you can't have them LMHO )
