Show me your creative pantry doors!

Hello...house will be completed in late October...I am still in search of a fun, vintage door for my pantry. I have visited architectural salvage shops, ebay, Habitat etc....still haven't found "the" door. So, I am looking for ideas to get my creative juices flowing! Builder is pestering me for that door asap!

Many that I look at are really in rough shape, extra holes for knobs, termite damage, too wide or too short etc....

Help!

RE: Show me your creative pantry doors!

I can't grab a picture of mine b/c it is in our storage unit but I am going for the same look. I went to an antique/salvage kind of shop and found with an original glass panel on the top in pretty good shape for $65. It was an old exterior door. This shop had lots of door knobs/plates/locks and we were able to dig through and find a matching set. We are going with a crystal door knob. I have not decided what I am going to do about the paint. It is white and worn but not in that nice shabby chic way, more dirty and dog scratch way. :) I don't want it to look brand new either and I am not confident in my skills to do "distress painting". I have seen some examples of it where it looks pretty cheezy and I am sure mine would look that way.

Anyway, I looked on CL too but a lot of the doors on there people were asking over $100 for and they were not that great.
