Dining Room Updates Continue

Apparently the dining room is getting a whole new look all around!! Jason is still working on the built-in and the bench but decided, heck, why not replace the door to the pantry too! Actually, he is planning on replacing most of the doors to rooms and closets in the house in the next few months. Most of the doors are old and don't shut all the way. So here is the first of the many door replacements!

As usual, Jason starts a project so quickly, I can barely jump in to get a 'before' picture. He already took off the door here and is starting to remove all the old trim.
 Here you are looking into the pantry and the old door is propped to the right.
 The new door is in place with new trim and craftsmen like detail at the top. The trim is MDF and has yet to be primed and painted!
We still have priming and painting to do on the built-in and bench, so my guess is that a painting party is happening sometime soon!

  1. Oh dear, was that an icky old door? Or an original old door? If original I would LOVE to get it from you! Some of our old doors don't quite shut either (you might remember that from your visit?). But we have fixed a few now, sanded the woodwork, or adjusted the strike plates so they can still function. I like the style of door you guys picked, it has a classic style to it! You and Jason have a good eye with the updates you are doing, I can't wait to see what else you guys do before you get to house #2!
