This was a great weekend for the Graham’s as we have finally finished our home studio remodel!  This project took us a while as it kept getting put on the back burner due to other commitments and projects, but this weekend we were able to put the finishing touch on this remodel… hanging the beautiful reclaimed freight elevators doors we found in Ithaca, New York.

The doors needed some TLC, but they were just what I had envisioned for the entrance to my home studio and workroom.

They are made of chestnut and once we cleaned them up with mineral spirits, the color was truly stunning.

Structurally, they needed a bit of work, but my husband did a great job tightening them up and repairing some of the damaged boards.  The visible dents and dings are just part of the charm and character of these unique vintage doors.

Now they make a grand entrance to my home design studio and workroom – the perfect space to spark my creativity!
