the doors...

did you know that the doors was one of my favorite bands in high school? yep. a boy i liked even got me a doors calendar for christmas one year. true story.

but this is really nothing at all to do with this post.

we have a new accessory in our house. they are sooo lovely.

bobby labored, (as usual!) and had the expert advice of his dad (thanks!!)

it is nice to be rid of the faux wood grained, slightly pink tinted dirty doors



we even replaced the front door. the old one had been awesomely installed up-side-down and had a busted door jam.

and again, bobby labored...
the only good thing about it, was we liked the color. so here i am painting the new door, trying to replicate it... can
anyone say scary???

all i can see is visions of a hot pink front door. why would anyone do that on purpose??

so... when i get around to finishing painting it, or when you come visit, you may just see the finished product of this one!

Can I just say that I love those doors (not the band) and I really love the detail on your door trim. Is the trim original to the house? I love the detail in older homes.

We are loving it too!

Sherry- the trim isn't original, but the house was built in 1914, and they had updated everything with a mish-mash of styles, so we tried to go back to something that would tie into the age of the house with both the doors and the trim...

Love them! They look so good! Danny painted our front door. He said it was much easier with a bristle brush rather than a roller brush. Maybe that will help?
