In December, 2009, just days into homeownership, we naively purchased all new interior doors for the house. The existing doors were old, gouged in places, full of paint drips and grossness. Replacing them with paneled, solid core doors seemed like the ideal thing to do. We learned to hang them ourselves and within a few months they were all up.
Ahh. Much better.
I arbitrarily set a timeline of Christmas, 2010 to have them all painted. Seemed easy enough, but holy crap, painting doors is the absolute worst. Christmas, 2010 came and went with 1 door painted and a meager coat slapped onto another door or 2. When you feel like you’re whole house is a construction zone, it’s not difficult to look past naked doors.
As the house started taking shape in 2011, I told myself all doors would be painted by Christmas, 2011. With the help of Sherwin Williams Pro Classic Paint (best door/trim paint ever), I came pretty close to making my goal. All but one door was done.
Until today! Today, I buckled down and got her done. Done. Done!
25 months later, all the doors are hung, painted, and sporting some pretty new hardware.
