Claire's Door

This is Claire's door.   It used to be the original front door of the house.    That is the original rim lock and door handle and the original half mortise hinges.   They were in pretty rough shape so we cleaned them up and spray painted them plain black.

Look carefully.  This door is crooked on every side.

Every.  Single.  One.

Were they drunk??

It's got such a great story that we decided to just run with it.   When the final trim goes up some of the uneven-ness won't show so much.

The bigger issue is that this is a bedroom door with a big glass panel.   Claire is still deciding whether to go for a heavy curtain, paint, wood/metal insert, contact paper, or something else to cover it up.

I voted for a heavy curtain on the inside with the old fashioned gold and black lettering on the outside glass, like this:

Claire's not so big on the idea, but I love it.
