We have lived in a traditional style house, built in the mid-1970s, with a mediteranian style flair to it. Can we say U.G.L.Y.?
Lots of dark wood...talking all the baseboards, kitchen cupboards, interiors doors, paneling/wainscoting, and so much more. I have diligently worked for 8 years to rid the house of this dark wood and ugly, dingy brass fixtures.
Thus the story of "Ye Olde Ugly Door" There are 14...yes, fourteen...interior doors that were original to this house that looked like this:
|This is with the casing|
painted white. Previously they were all
dark like the door. Ouch!
|Replaced doors left in their 'natural' wood.|
Tied together via door handle and trim paint.
The "easiest" solution has been to paint and replace hardware, however it is the most labor intensive.
|Hallway closet door near kitchen.|
Painted dark wood, replaced handled,
added framing from scrap wood and
chalk board paint. Trimmed with decorative
accent on top.
