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???
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?
