But the new door says "these people have real class."
Here's the old one...
It had been painted layer after layer of poor paint color choices, electric blue being the worst.
It was one happy day when the old door came down and the new one went up.
The solid wood door came from Lowes (or maybe Home Depot, I can't remember). I chose one with 9 window panes to allow some natural light in. After Stephen Grande completed his handy work by putting up the door, he gave me instructions to sand, stain, and polyurethane. It took me about 3 naptimes to get the job done.
Rubbing alcohol removed the stain easily from the window panes, but I put up painter's tape before applying polyurethane - which was less work in the end not having to scrape polyurethane off the windows.
I LOVE the finished result and think it looks great in the background of pictures!
I love a project....especially when its over.
