An Old Look for the New Hall
This is me saying, "Holy shit, he did a good job putting in this door." After four weeks, I'm still in shock that I have someone that knows what they are doing. We paid $5.00 for this door a couple years ago at an auction. It's missing a pane of glass, but there isn't much else wrong with it. Kenny had to remove the knob & lockset so he could trim an inch off each side of the door. I'll have to patch the holes from the original hardware like Greg did a month or so ago and install a new set. I don't feel too bad about cutting on the door. From what we can tell, it is probably only 30 some-odd years old.
And here is the door and hall again. Note the exposed studs to the left. We'd originally intended to do the whole hall in beadboard, but we've finally run out of it. We'll probably have to do it with drywall because we're to poor to buy more new wood and don't have the time to tear down a house in few weeks. We like to think of our compromise with drywall as an "accent wall." I think I'll be able to live with it.
We're thinking about leave the wood in its current "rustic" condition. What do you think?
