If asked, I would have said I stepped through the door on a whim, on a fancy - it's a pretty door, so let's see what's on the other side.
I would have said I hadn't expected anything to happen. It's a door frame standing on its own, in the back of a garage sale in the back of an old yard.
I wouldn't exactly have been lying, although I wouldn't exactly have been telling the truth. Certainly, I picked up the silver letter opener on a similar whim as I stepped through; this could come in handy.
In handy where, why, you ask?
Why, on the other side of the Door, of course.
