Oh door how I love thee!!

Sorry I’ve been slightly missing from blog world the last week or so.  We’ve had a string of nasty colds running through our house.  They’ve been persistent and have just stuck around.  I am still not feeling like myself & hope to kick this thing soon.  Our weather here hasn’t helped.  One day it is 8 and snowing, the next day it’s sunny and 45 or rainy and almost 60. 

Onto the fun stuff!!!  I worked at the house for a few hours on Saturday and all day Sunday.   We are trying to prepare for the CO.  I have touch up painting to do & I’ve been working on the vanities for the bathrooms.  But the best is the door was hung today J

no light on

We had to have the straps lengthened which the guy that did our framing did for us.  He’s handy & pretty awesome!!  I need to refinish the door.  Still trying to decide on a color. Suggestions??   We also need to test the paint for lead before sanding.  The door leads into my pantry. 

I just love how the light shines through the window.  I also love the mail slot & the door knocker.  We will plug the holes but will be putting the handle back on. 

Light is on

I purchased the door at Philadelphia Salvage Co. and I’ve been dying to see it up.  Dave did such an awesome job building the arch for me.  Every person that has come to the house has ohhhed and ahhhed over the door. 

By the way did you get a peek at the door that’s sitting in my pantry??  This will be a redo just for a fun door to have as décor.  I bought that door for $20!!

A sneak peek at the downstairs guest bathroom.  

 Obviously I still need to finish up painting.  The toilet & sink will be finished next Wednesday.  

I hope everyone has a great week!

Much love, peace & happiness

  1. WOW, I really really really LOVE that door. What a statement it makes.

  2. Hi Lynn,
    I just found your blog through Ivy and Elephants. You really have some beautiful projects going on. I wanted to tell you that I read your post about the fire and you have my total sympathy. Our home was struck by lightning four years ago and burned. We were very lucky that our daughters weren't upstairs and are so grateful that everyone made it out. Please feel free to email me if you need to bend the ear of someone who has been there. It looks like you are near the end of reconstruction and that is wonderful! All the best.


  3. Love, LOVE the new door! What a unique and amazing feature it will be. Thanks so much for sharing with us. We love having you!

    1. Thank you Patti...that's very sweet. And, I love being with you guys :)
