Architectural Salvage: Three Windows and a Door

Hello to all!

Last week Hubby and I went to Vintage Village on a mission. And we came back with exactly what we were looking for. Imagine that. No shopping around. No waiting to find them. No stress. They were all just magically there! And discovered in about 30 minutes.

Three old windows.
The one in the middle is just slightly different, 
but close enough...

How could you not love these?
Pardon our legs reflecting in the glass!!

But the best part was the old salvage door.
Exactly what we were looking for.
Don't you love the rope "doorknob"?
Was this thing a rest room door in a bar,
or perhaps on the side of a red barn?
A cool shade of red, 
but not for us...

We love that the panels run length-wise,
but best of all is the reverse side...

Just look at that patina...

...a closer view...

Here is the door propped up 
over the windows...

And they are sitting in our very own garage. 
Not just on a photo on my cell phone.
My, oh my.
Whatever are we going to use these for?
Stay posted!


Have a great day!


  1. Love both your "new " windows and the door, oh my, it id amazing with all the old beautiful crackle Sue.

    1. My hubby finished that project yesterday and it is waiting for me to paint it. The "reveal" to come later. Right now it is in the garage with one of our cars and a bunch of garden and porch stuff...big storm coming today with heavy rains and winds and a chance of tornadoes. Didn't want to take any chances, so no room for me to paint yet. I guess I will work on fabric art instead. Boo-hoo! XO

  2. Ohh Sue, I am 100% curious!! I have some 100 old windows and I have used 2 for my bedroom décor. I have 2 more I want to use in the Living room; but kind of lost as to how.
    I am hoping for inspiration from you!! : ) Thanks for sharing~ Karen O

    1. Dear friend, why don't you share some of that on your blog? I would just love to see it! Our creation may or may not be inspiring, but I will share it as soon as I paint it. XO
