Special Doors


Our new House has old doors, very old doors.


Both front and back doors are more than 200 years old.



They were brought from Argentina.




They were also 14 feet tall and had to be cut.




We cut the top from the front door and made this cabinet.





And we cut the bottom of the back door and built a bathroom vanity.





It now holds this fine hand painted sink from Kohler.





This is the front door with glass panels and hand wrought iron windows
The  Letter box spells "Cartas"





This is what the front door looks like from the inside.





And this is what you see from the inside of the front door, our outbuildings.




Sometimes you see sunflower heads and onions drying on top of the wall and beyond that, our mountains.

  2. Gorgeous old wooden doors, all of them! I'm sure they're so happy to be in your house now. The front door is my favorite.
    PS due to the rain, no street market today!

  5. Gina, whenever i visit your wonderful home virtually, i just can't believe the beauty of it! those doors are truly precious..

    thank you for your comment about the advent calendar. shipping is the reason why i didn't put it on the etsy shop. some of them are shipped only to Europe but i already have ideas for next year, a more shippable calendar :-)

    Have a beautiful creative day !

  6. Dear Lala, Can't wait for your "shippable calendar". I know it will be more beautiful, more artistic, more original, more sensational than anything we have seen.
    Thanks for the creative day, your greeting will come in handy today, I'm painting ceramics.
