We've had a bit of fun tracking down old doors and things. I scored some nice old doors that we don't have to strip at all and some that we do. I found some nice old glass knobs at a salvage place and I've learned a bunch of stuff about old door hardware. I've also gotten lots of practice stripping 100 years of old paint, varnish and shellac off of old doors.

I cleaned it all up and oiled it and now it's as good as new. All it needs is a skeleton key. We'll use it on one of the new old doors in the addition.
It was nice to have a new puzzle to work on and I must say that working on it made me think of my dad a lot. There's something about the smell of wd-40. He'd have gotten a kick out of the whole process.
