Sarah’s House: Extraction

My husband Dan decided that it was time to put his crowbar to good use. There was a set of old pine folding doors that could be closed to separate the dining room from the living room. I’m not entirely sure these doors were original to the house but they do appear to be old.

They were screwed in to a frame made from the same wood that was then nailed to the existing moulding around the cased opening to the dining room.

So first the before,

There’s not much going in my oversized dining room design wise, in fact there is still a lot of miscellaneous stuff sitting in there leftover from the January move. But the pine doors are gone and that is a step in the right direction.
