TWO DOORS ARE BEING HUNG IN THE DUTCH COLONIAL!
We’ve been at this project for so long . . .
. . . every minor update is a real morale boost for lil’ mama.
How else do I explain my giddiness about a pair of doors?
Let’s have a look-see at all the excitement.
Photo snapped earlier today:
Here’s the same doorway last week:
Disclaimer: G.O. is upset by the squalor + wanted to delete this photo.
Saner heads prevailed, though.

You may recall that we created the powder room
from what was a hallway.
Right now, it’s an approximately 5′ x 5′ boxy silo.
Oh, dear. Boxy silo isn’t exactly the look I had in mind.
What shall we do, to add ‘instant age’ to this space?
First up, the marble tile floor looks like it might have been original:
As does the ‘new’ door itself, which is, in fact, original to the house:
It was borrowed from somewhere upstairs,
as was all the woodwork that will go IN-side the powder room.
Have a look!
‘Tis okay that this side of the door’s been painted.
My plans are to paint everything gray in the powder room.
But just look at the beautiful, original doorknob:
The paint on it has to go, + go soon.
Look at the other side’s knob + hardware!
I am seriously loving the black glass!
Stay tuned for a reveal of ‘Door #2’ . . .
+ meanwhile, here are few more RedBird projects!
Thanks for viewing!
