New Old Front Door

The contractor who is helping me with my bedroom project came to the job with the usual tools and materials.  But he brought something else that first day, too: an old mission oak front door that had failed to sell at his yard sale.  He offered it to me for free.

The door needs some restoration work, but this is just the kind of rewarding, small scale project it will be fun to undertake after my big bedroom project upstairs is finally “put to bed.”

Wow, I really love that. The three narrow windows is a classic style, but the angled bottoms are just great. They make it so unique and classy looking while still matching the era and everything.

What a find! and free!

What a great door!
I hate our door. I did paint it YELLOW. (All caps because it is so bright)
At least the color makes me smile. On day I will stumble upon the perfect craftsman door.

That’s a lovely gift. Congratulations! I’ll bet that it will be absolutely gorgeous when you’re done with it.
