So I was at one of my most favorite antique places (no, I will not say where it is because I don’t want to give it away!) the other day and found THIS door for – what for it – $35!!?!?!
Woo! I bought it even before knowing if it would fit my door! I was with my boss, who drives a suburban and figured it would be much easier to get the door then. If I waited to confirm the measurements, I’d have to borrow someones car (eh, I hate asking to borrow people’s cars!), rent something (really? for a $35 door? I’d probably spend more on renting a car than what I paid for the door.) or have them deliver (they charge a delivery fee, obviously). Oh the joys of having a small car. I figured if it didn’t fit then I could just craigslist it.
I’ve been wanting a wood/glass storm door for my entry door for a long time and it sure paid off to wait! We’re going to get rid of our current front door. This is what our entry currently looks like.
I am just not a fan of the faux stained glass wanna-be door. We will probably replace the faux with a solid wood front door and stain it a walnut color. The new door will probably look similar to this. I’ll strip the storm door and stain it the same color. I hope we can do it before Christmas! Wouldn’t it look great with an awesome wreath?
