At long last (or at least what FELT long), actual progress has been made on our downstairs renovation project!
i.e., we hustled back to Ashby Lumber this week and picked out doors. Here’s what we got:
Our winning door! Only difference is our hardware, though also black oiled copper, will have a cool square plate behind the knob to emphasize the panel forms.
We’re absolutely in love with our choice. We resisted the urge to stick with a boring, safe, old school single-panel door (like what we have now) and boldly went with a classic Craftsman three-panel, WITH shaker paneling.
That’s right – no scallop at all! THIS IS IMPORTANT!
It’s an authentic look we think is true to the modest, early Craftsman style of our house – a clutch choice for bringing back 3675’s original flavor, and now we’ll be forced (in a good way!) to see it through in trim and when we eventually continue the renovations on the main level.
And you thought these were JUST DOORS. Sheesh.
Anyway, now we just need them to GET HERE and some hammers to start swingin’…
