Over 25years ago we renovated the front of our house, extended the lounge room and front veranda. We sent our very old front door away to have all the paint stripped off it and instead of checking the wood first they just sandblasted it. Red Pine wasn't made to be sandblasted!!! Our beautiful door came back pitted and too badly damaged to be used again so off to the garage it went. Recently we decided to make the area outside the Dining room door into a small courtyard. I envisioned a wooden fence and some sort of gate. Hubby came home with some amazing rusty iron and I dragged the door out of the shed. This is it so far, we still have the fence along the garden to do.
