The other day I was reminiscing about taking my kids on trips and posting photos of the doors we saw along the way. Whether it was Morocco or Guatemala, Mexico City or Madrid, I was always on the lookout for doors to share here. It has been at least a year since I’ve traveled more than a few hours’ drive from home, and I’ve really missed seeing beautiful and unusual doors.
Since we’ll be sticking close to home for the coming months, I’m working on a glamping project that involves old doors. I will share the results in a month or two, but last weekend I went to one of the bazaars outside of San Miguel de Allende, to see what I could find. I think we could all use a virtual road trip, so here are some photos from my shopping excursion. Enjoy!
At the bazaar, there were stacks of old doors in every size and design:
There were small “cantina” doors, and giant doors including a pair that looked like it came from a stable:
Many of the old doors had been recently painted as art pieces:
Another artisan was carving beautiful new designs on old door panels:
Lots of cool little details:
There was even a building made of old doors and windows:
