Door 2 - Streets Alive!

Side facing the sidewalk

This is another recycled door, part of Streets Alive! Downtown Doors in Orillia, a city a bit more than an hour north of where I live.  A couple of weeks ago, I showed you another of the Streets Alive! Downtown Doors here and another posted last Saturday HERE .

This door - transformed by Karen Bell, a community studies teacher at Georgian College - invites you to open it to check out the other side.

So imagine you can pull on a knob and...

Side facing the street

find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Those doorknobs remind me of some 'wonderland' scene. Which one to turn?

Mary Hone said...

I love that. SO creative. I could use that on a house.

These are cool. Makes me want to do something like that to my front door. Oh wait...I'm married.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

Pick a knob and see what you get. I don’t know how that was done but it looks brilliant. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our front doors were as magical as that.

William Kendall said...

Colourful and eclectic!

So which knob DO you use? :-) Love it!

Jo said...

What artistic talent. What an interesting post!

Kathy said...

I like the street side but must withhold judgment on the sidewalk side. All those knobs and handles just doesn't quite grab me. I guess it's just a matter of different strokes for different folks, eh?

Hannah said...

What a fascinating old door, lots of bells and whistles and the rainbow design is cool.

Kay said...

I really love this exhibit! All the doors are so interesting! This one has quite an interesting assortment of knobs. Is that mirror above the rainbow?

Rebecca said...

Very cool!
