Out of the Barn and Into the Living Room

When Shanna of Restoration Redoux spotted this 5 panel door in the Craigslist free section, she nearly died.  ”Can you believe I found a five panel that was chippiness perfection … and it was aqua?” Shanna asks happily.

Before long, Shanna had that door home and was trying to scrub off all the accumulated grime it had acquired over the years.  ”Looking at the before photo below, I have to laugh since I’ve tried so hard on some of my pieces to get that “aged” look with dark wax … but I suppose that’s a little more sanitary than 50 years of horse dust,” she laughs.  Once the door was sanitary, Shanna’s husband helped her to cut the door into three pieces.  The longer piece became a tabletop, and the two shorter pieces became the legs for the table.  What an awesome new use for this old door!
