The old barn door................................

This old door was attached to one of the openings on one of the derelict workers cottages here at the chateau...................I used it for my photographs when it was still just attached by one rusted old hinge and I am still using it today even though it has now hit the woodpile!!!

The old paint is just so wonderfully distressed with a look that just couldn`t be reproduced...............

It looks so forlorn in the woodpile. It no longer has a top and is just a bottom half with a handle!! I just can`t help feeling guilty for throwing it there!!
I wonder who used that door when the barn was part of a servants cottage in the early 1800s?

Everytime I go out into the garden he looks at me as it to say " have discarded me....and after all the help I have given you!"

Would everyone think me totally mad if I try to include him somewhere in the renovations?

  1. I think your mad if you don't. What a find. There's got to be somewhere it can be used. A potting shed perhaps? A garden entrance?

  2. Oh you definitely have to use the door somewhere. The naturally distressed and worn paint is just gorgeous.
