It’s in! There’s nothing like a big gaping hole in the front of your house to motivate project completion. :)
The old french doors moved to the side of the house to replace some rotten ones.
We stained and kept the wood (on the exterior side anyway). Oak isn’t my favorite wood grain, but when you find a door that’s worth a couple thousand dollars and pay only $150.00 for it, the pickiness subsides. :) We took the hanging lantern from inside the house, and hung it over the door. I love the contrast between the metal, wood, and painted siding.
Now all she needs is a little dressing up. I’ll be sure to share the adornments once completed. Have a happy holiday!
