Check out this awesome door that I scored off my folks:
This door at one point was attached to a super old house.
Isn’t that the cutest thing ever!?
It looks like it only has one coat of paint on it–unlike my front door which has approximately 1 million coats of paint. I haven’t decided if I am going to strip the paint off and stain it, or perhaps repaint it.
I do have plans for this door, but I am not sure if it is going to work. I would like a door to the basement, but there is really not a whole lot of room. Basically it would be a door opening up to another door–which means that one door must to closed to open the other. Not a huge deal, but could get annoying. I was thinking about making the door open into the stairs–but that would just be a terrible, terrible death trap which is likely not up to any sort of code. Right now there is no door, just an open staircase.
I should have really taken a photo so you could see what the hell i am talking about. I would have to frame in this bad boy and do a fair amount of finish work.
I have been thinking about this for some time now and I think it would be a good idea as far a weatherization of the house.
What do you think? Strip and stain or paint a bright color?
