vintage wedding inspiration- old chippy doors

I have a serious love of all things old and architectural. I could spend hours sifting through the old doors, window frames, corbels, fancy posts and columns, fireplace mantles, and the miles of trim at Preservation Salvage in New Orleans. While some may look at an old decrepit door as junk, I see it as a thing of beauty. I wonder what the house was like that it came out of. Who lived there, and why did it get torn out?

Here are a few fun and inspirational ways to incorporate old worn doors into your wedding ceremony and reception, inspired by one of our current brides, who is renting both of our old doors as wedding decor!

The first door is very similar to our green chicken wire door! Use it to display escort cards, or photos of the bride and groom. Lay one of our old doors on top of a few whiskey barrels and you have an instant table!

lastly, two of my favorite things: vintage books and chippy doors. These beautiful images were taken by the talented New Orleans photographers, Magnolia Pair.

    Love the photos and the ideas. So many times I have driven by an old door at the side of the road but not anymore!
