Vintage Thingies Thursday: Old Door


It's another week for Vintage Thingies Thursday and  my week's entry is this Old Door. This door is the front door of an old restaurant which has been renovated for many times but  they took care some of the doors and woods that makes the building very natural looking and rustic. When we came in I immediately noticed the number etched on top of the door says 1856. Because I was curious I asked the concierge if the number etched is correct and she said yes. I am amazed and my mind thought of the people in that era and the era after 1800 who touched and passed that door. Hmmmm if only that door could tell the story ^_^.

Beautiful! I love old architectural pieces. I was hoping you were going to say that they gave it to you when they renovated but.....at least you get to see it. And we do too. Thank you!

Love the door. I like seeing dates on old buildings and things to. I like to imagine what it was like when that building was being built.

What an amazing door. I love old doors, and have been eyeing them lately and old windows. Just waiting for warmer weather so I can try and turn a old door into something neat. Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!
