Barn Doors With Wrought Iron Accent

A few weeks back I went to the very fabulous Paris Street Market with a girlfriend. I found these incredibly ‘chippy’ old barn doors there. Best part was, it was a set of 2, which is exactly what I needed. Also, I loved that the old rusted hardware was still intact.

I had a vision for these doors, to go up above our built-ins that surround our tv. This wall is almost 20 feet tall and its been bare since we moved in……over 4 yrs ago.

While they were perfectly ‘chic’ all on their own, I decided that they needed a little extra element of something, another material or dimension. So, while perusing Hobby Lobby yesterday, I came across these neat looking wrought iron wall decor items. And guess what??? They were all marked 50% off. SCORE! I didn’t want it to cover the entire barn door, rather just accent it. So, handy hubby mounted them on top of the doors for me.

Then, I coated them good with a spray Polycrylic so that I could preserve the natural ‘chippy ness’ and patina of these cool doors.

So here is the before……..

And here they are ready to be mounted up on our walls…….(that post to come later).
