Restored Doors

The House on High Street

The next several posts for The House on High Street will be short and sweet.  Things will be moving VERY FAST, as we are hoping to be in the house by Thanksgiving. (Which probably means Hanukkah or Christmas.)

I’ll also be posting videos on the updated LE Woman YouTube Channel, so please remember to subscribe to both the LE Woman website and YouTube Channel for updates.

Today’s post is about Restored Doors.  Here are a few pictures of before & after rooms and halls with the original doors that have been stripped, sanded, stained, and/or modified with custom windows and reinstalled. Have I mentioned that every time Scott and I see something in this house restored to its original beauty, it makes us so happy!

Original Front Entrance Door.

Here is the latest picture of the center hallway. The front door has been stripped (the original wood is a precious Black Walnut) and stained. We had windows put in to invite more lighting. The top windows still need to be fixed.

We had two windows installed to brighten up the center hall. The top windows still need to be fixed. And, just wait until you see the wall adorned with two magnificent wall sconces!

Side entrance door from the outside. We'll miss the red (both entrance doors were red), but we just could not cover up this beautiful (and original) black walnut.
Side entrance door from the outside. We’ll miss the red (both entrance doors were red on the exterior), but we did not want to cover up this beautiful (and original) black walnut. I’m not sure why it’s called black walnut, but the color looks more like a mahogany, and we love it!
This is what the 3rd floor looked like, before.

And here she is all shiny and bright. These doors are original. The hinges and hardware, also original, have been restored.
