With the hard work from our friend Gavin (whom I now owe several hours of my painting services), the new front door has been installed and is swinging beautifully.
It’s been almost 2 years since we had a fully functioning lockset on our front door. The previous door’s deadbolt knob was loose and got lost during our tile installation of 2010. Every time we had guests they’d inevitably find themselves clawing at the door to leave due to my habitual door locking. We also never had a peep hole, which made for awkward peeps around windows to spy on unexpected visitors. So not only is this door squeaky new, it’s also way more functional than our previous door.
Here’s our before door.
And our after.
I don’t think I could be anymore pleased than I am.
