Rustic Interior Door
A pair of antique Mexican barn doors were used to create a garage door and this bath entry. The idea with these doors was to keep it simple and rustic, retaining the feel of the antique barn doors. The antique slide bolt back was kept, reinforced with additional screws and a new slide bolt added. While the original finish was retained, it was enriched with several colors of hand-rubbed waxed patina. Antique strapping was added using antique flat-head nails & clavos. And, keeping it simple, our ever inventive hardware department sliced a giant pull ring in half and used each half as a handle on the front and back of the door.
