The old but new doors...

I mentioned in an earlier post that we were going to refinish some bi-fold doors that were up in the house before we bought it. The doors were taken done by previous owners and set outside in one of the sheds in our backyard. We have talked about fixing the doors and putting them back up for two years and we finally got around to doing just that with help from our friends. The doors separate our lounge room (living room) from our kitchen. We're not sure why the previous owners took them down. We felt that they would make the lounge room cozier especially in the winter, which is just around the corner for us. So without further adieu here are the pictures of our work and the progress it took.



How it looked before without the doors.



The adventure begins. What do we do first?



Find the tools, sandpaper, varnish, etc.



The old varnish comes off.





and on with the new...



If we put them here they should work. I hope....



Yeah it worked!



Nice...



Excellent...





Nice and cozy... What do you think?

Special thanks goes to Cin and Hop for all of the hard work and help!
