My “Junque” lucky star continues to shine upon me, I hope it doesn’t move on any time soon! You will not believe what I found now…..
DOORS! Truly, the early bird catches the worm, and in my case, it was two giant worms, or old doors I should say….
In my town, there is a little corner church that is in the process of being remodeled. It is old, and there are lot of things from inside that need replacing. I spotted two VERY LARGE old doors in a pile with other lumber, it was early, and it being a church…I didn’t think it was appropriate to just go help myself.
I went back later in the day and asked the Superintendent on the job if they were reusing them. Not only were they not reusing them, they were so happy that someone was hauling them away for them. Good thing I am not the only member of my family who goes crazy for “Le Junque”. Mr. Red was pretty excited too.
The doors had a nice soak overnight in a green stripping agent. My friend is coming over this morning to help “unearth” them. I think we are in for an archaeological experience.There appears to be at least 5 different colors on each side of each door. Can’t wait to see what is under there!
I have some ideas of what they will be used for in their next life, but I would love to hear what you would do with them!
Update!! Here are the rest of the doors I was given.
Every one of them, solid wood. As of 2016, I still have 3! I have used them for various things like a room divider, the latest will hopefully and finally be a photo drop back. For the updates on the doors, click HERE.
