Garden Door

This mahogany door used to be our front door for many years. It had been sitting in our garage for the last 3 or 4 years taking up much needed space. We tried selling it and even tried giving it away, but had no takers. I was looking at Pinterest one night and saw some pictures of old doors that people had used in their gardens. I had seen garden gates, but never a garden door. I asked my hubby, Terry if he thought our old door would fit in the opening of our garden arbor. If anyone could make this happen, I knew he could. A couple of weeks later, here is the finished project. Terry built the frame, I painted it and we both hung the door, which was a pain in the butt. Recently we added some solar lights to either side of the door. Thank you to Terry for making my garden door idea a reality. This is the view looking toward our garden.
A view of the door from inside our garden. This is the side of the door that was facing inside our house, so it isn't as weathered as the other side of the door.
Pretty neat, eh?

So cool! I love it!! It won't take long for "inside" side to get weathered now.
