I was working under a very old house that was buil back in the early 20s I found a set of doors that had been weathered and petrafied. I drug them out pressure washed them and rubbed them down with natural danish oil. Had replace a few damaged pieces of wood, but for the most part the wood had got so hard from being petrified that it looked good. Then I cut some some mirror glued it in and used some quarter round to hold it.

As they say, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Great find and nice restore.

Great reuse of the wood. Looks really great and has some character to it.

Have your say...
