Knock! Knock!

As I am in the demo process of my foyer, I have spent way too many hours removing hunter green wallpaper.   I usually get bored mid-project so I like to take a short hiatus to get re-motivated.  If I can do a quick project which instant gratification, my energy is renewed!

So, I have decided to focus on my doors in the upstairs foyer.   They all fit perfectly and close tightly so I do not want to replace them.  BUT, they are U-G-L-Y!.  I have three bedroom doors and a smaller linen closet door.  The bathroom door is a new glass door so thankfully that one is done.  Ok, it still needs a doorknob!

I am going to attempt a makeover this week.  Right now, they are hollow core wood grain doors.  Two are original brown and two are painted white.  I am going to attempt to make them look like a 3 panel mission style door.  Even though my style is Traditional with a capital T, I love the clean lines of this look.  New hinges and doorknobs coming up!   Do you have any idea how hard it is to find door hardware in polished chrome?  This is my inspiration pic - here we go!
