The Doors..................

..................and no, I'm not referring to a really great rock band. These below are why I haven't posted in awhile & the fact that whenever I do a somewhat larger piece (post below this one), it puts me in a brain drain for a little while.

Daryl & I are in the slow process of replacing all of our 11 interior hollow core doors with solid maple doors & here is our first four we sanded, stained & replaced. (Aren't they just beautiful?) I just love them. They're so nice & heavy & they really brighten up the spaces that they're in. I can't wait until the rest of the doors are done in the house.

Apparently my little boy, Matisse, thinks he needs to be in all of the pics. Was editing out the ones to not keep & I think he's in probably half of them. "Oh mom has a camera, wait for me!!"

If you look in the second photo, on the back wall, you can see the pc swap I did with Lynda. If you'd like to see a closeup of them you can check it out here.

I have a couple of pieces that I'm working on but I have family coming in tomorrow & staying for the weekend, so I might not have a chance to finish them & post them until later next week.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Your new doors are beautiful! Matisse looks just like my Taylor, who also likes to pose for the camera. :)
