    I love these treasures! They lend such a unique character to the home. I am now wondering how these were reused. The windows are such cool photo frames too, right?

    Very cool Chris! My aunt used old doors and windows as garden pieces in her backyard landscape. Turned out really nice. I love this image you created.

      That’s interesting about your aunt’s gardens. I’ll have to search on ideas like that because we have some old things around with which we could possible do something similar. Thanks for the comment AND the great idea, Sandra. Have a great day.

    New doesn’t necessarily mean better and these days I have such an appreciation for those things that were built to last back in the day. Lovely photo!

    Recycling or re-purposing is good and I am glad that you have such shops that do this. Over here with space constraints, not a lot of re-purposing is done and people actually import such items from overseas to re-purpose them for their properties as they like a hint of nostalgia. Plus they pay a bomb for it with the designer in charge of making their property look rustic!

      We have people who pay top dollar for rustic also. Tat’s the reason that shops like this hold onto old doors and such. I wonder how the cost of this compares to a new door.

        For us here, a rustic old door with scratches and all cost a few times more than a brand new door. The price for design and rustic feel. I think your rustic scarecrow will fetch a good price here once the interior designer is done with placing it🤣

    Wonderful shot, Chris! I love the overlapping lines and angles and different textures in this one. Also this makes me want to refurbish the frame and door myself! 😂
