Keeping it real

When I posted about our new kitchen, I mentioned being a little embarrased about the "before"  pictures. Well, here's something else that is a tad embarrassing...there is not a single door to be found in our house, and it's been that way for 4 years now.

For a measure of privacy, we've hung old blankets over the doorways.

Attractive, I know. So why do I bring this up now?

Well, for one, I realized that I need to get over being embarrassed about how our house looks "in progress" and be brave about sharing the not-so-glamorous side of renovating.

But here's the real reason: Cameron surprised me this past weekend and ordered all the doors for our house! Real doors. The kind that open and close!

On order: molded two panel solid core doors by Jeldwen. (Thanks, Home Depot, for putting them on sale!) I think they suit the style for our old house, while still working with the clean, modern look we prefer. They'll come primed and ready for us to paint in a deep, dark shade similar to our kitchen's lower cabinets. It may be a while before we have new hardware, but I'm hoping to find a simple lever style that's affordable. Who knew hardware can be so expensive?
