The Good Door of the North



For weeks the front doors have had a thin coat of ragged black paint left over from 1895. This was what was left after I stripped off a few layers of old and new paint paint. The new paint was the worst. It was a thick, gooey layer of latex paint that was slopped on by a Starving Student painting company about 10 years ago.



But now, just in time for Halloween, I give you Galinda, The Good Door of the North. It's like these doors are just begging to be hit with eggs tonight.

Wow, you're really wearing your fingers to the bone with all the stripping and renovating you've been doing. Great job. Hope those doors don't get egged!

This is my last push before winter's silent slumber sets in.

what a beautiful, inspiring site... i feel it would be churlish to call it a blog! I'll not find time to look at all your posts - but just wanted to say how well it looks. I'm on a restoration journey - albeit tiny in comparison, and i'm getting just a little of your enthusiasm right now!

teresa,

Thank you for the comment. I am so glad the foyer/stair hall project is behind me.
