I Married a Stripper

Yesterday, Jim and I got a couple doors from Santa Fe Wrecking, the same place where we bought our bathtub. These are a couple of vintage models to replace a couple of super-thin '50s eyesores in the house. I was planning to send them out to a stripping place to bring them down to bare wood, but Jim has taken it upon himself to do the job. Our plan is to stain all the doors, door frames and baseboards a dark walnut color.

I regret to say that -- even though we filled up a humongous dumpster with all the garbage in the house and had at one time cleared the entire yard -- the picture below is what our yard looks like today. It's been a dumping ground for too many contractors. You can see Jim at work through the tree on the left.
