Kid. Candy store.

I've had doors on my mind.  Workshop doors.  We scored a set of beautiful Queen Anne doors (pictures to come) at Architectural Salvage in Exeter, New Hampshire, but still needed a single for the side entrance.  We swung by New England Demolition and Salvage in New Bedford on the way to the Cape this weekend and scored this beauty:

It was not easy to find this spectacular door and it took the help of one of their super friendly staff to turn over door after door after door.  But in a true melding of my right and left brain careers, I summonsed the spirit of Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart who famously said about porn, "I know it when I see it."  And I did.  About the door, that is.  Maybe 100 doors into our search, this beauty revealed itself.

Turns out it's from a now-defunct motorcycle shop in Wareham, MA, which was torn down to welcome in Water Wizz.  [Insert joke of choice here.]  I'm going to have to get really friendly with my electric sander, but it's going to be so worth it.
