interior door upgrade

14 April 2016
thank you, d. lawless hardware, for your amazing hardware once again. this doorknob with a satin stainless finish is the best, and you can see more of their great selection here

this door is pretty ugly. it's almost embarrassing to admit we left that pink, splintery door up for almost 4 years...but when you look at how crazy everything used to be, i guess it's not that rough.....right? also, that dingy pink is the color that the entire first floor's trim was! whyyyy would you ever do that, previous owners, whyyy???

devin had already put up fresh trim around this door that leads to the basement, so all we needed was a new door and a new knob! and what a difference a new door and knob make :) below i've listed the steps it took to get this interior door upgraded.

step 1: (not pictured) paint the new door before the hardware gets installed and the door gets hung. 

step 2: replace the old door and knob. (the doorknob from d. lawless hardware shipped super quickly and was so easy to install!)

step 3: paint the trim and doorframe! notice how in the photo above it all looks pretty good, but you can still see the unpainted wood in the doorframe. also, the unpainted door trim is dingy compared to the freshly painted door.

what projects have you been working on recently? do you prefer brass hardware or the brushed nickel look?
