    These came out of my Gmas 1895 abandoned home in Iowa. Been sitting vacant since the 1960s and I retrieved them around 2002, in a crumbling home with the floors falling into the basement. They now live with me in California :) Photo is of my Gmas home still standing, picture inside from a previous visit, then the doors when they arrived in Cali before I cleaned them. All I used was Murphys wood soap and lemon oil, they came out beautiful!

      Thanks for the comments. Im working on getting a Secretary that used to belong to my Gma and sit in the house in the photo, when my gma died my dad drove it to Cali in the 1960s and sold it to some family friends, who I was later told have it, they still do today and are willing to let me have it back. :) I never knew my Grandma on my Dad's side so these are pieces from that line of my family I never knew.

      If you look in the distance of the photo inside the old house gmas old stove is laying on its side, another relative tried to get it out and fell through the floor, so it was suspended there in the center of the room on its side (Sigh)

      I love the fact that you have them just standing against the wall as a display piece. Such a cool idea! They look great!!

      those are great inside doors, I use that Murrphy wood soap on my antique telephones also.

      Id love to get the archway but that would be a major project and we think they are probably whats holding some of the house up!

      Very nice display!

      I'd get some beams and reinforce the archway and then remove the archway wood work before it's destoyed, it's a wonderful piece of wood work and would be worth some$ with the doors.
