Your Clever Suggestions: Spanish Doors Re-Imagined

Earlier this week I asked you to rework these stunning eighteenth-century Spanish double doors ($12,808), available on 1st Dibs, so they served a different decorating or practical function in your home. I wanted to know how you could see these employed in an alternate use in your home.


I was so impressed with your creative ideas!

  • maisiegirl said "I might use them as doors in the master bedroom, or use them as screens. Or split them up and use them as doors in the bathroom. I don't think there is anywhere in my building plans where there are French doors, but one could do that. They are really beautiful and I certainly would want to showcase them in my home."
  • nikkeeb said, "I'm with the room divider suggestions. It's smaller than most dividers though, so you could instead take a corner of your room and turn it into a nook, or turn it sideways and use it as the wall of a countertop/bar"
  • emalove said "I think I'd use it as a room divider or screen . . . it's very pretty."
  • sarahoerst said, "It would make a great top for a dining room table, if your dining room was big enough for it. Or I think it would make a great headboard with some really lush linens and a huge bed."

  • mletrav said "How cool would it be to incorporate these into a flooring situation? I'm imagining surrounding them with small marble tiles, and then laying a clear covering on top to smooth things out. Fabulous separately down a hallway, or together in a foyer."
  • katherynn said "Beautiful doors! I agree with most of the posts here! I wouldn't want to ruin the gorgeous wood or beauty of them so I'd probably keep them together and put a glass top on them and use them as a dining room table. I like the headboard idea too! They would also would be pretty as a door to a guest bathroom or the master bathroom."
  • mbrown81 said "Split them up and use them to flank a big picture window, or great piece of art. They need to be placed on dark, rich walls."
