About a door…

So there’s this door.

Actually, two of them.

We’re pretty sure they are the original doors from when the house was built in 1883.  And they’re gorgeous.

When we bought the house, one door had a clear glass pane and the other was red. We think the red glass was original, and have heard lots of different stories/explanations about the significance of red (or otherwise colorful) glass in Victorian homes.

BEFORE

The clear glass pane broke when the workers took down the porch, and – although we LOVE the red transom (and decided to keep it), we weren’t in love with red glass in the doors. So our window guy installed some textured glass instead.

AFTER

We love it.  And we love the potential we see in these doors.

Can’t wait to get them refinished.
