We took all the half-doors off their hinges almost two weeks ago.  Wrote numbers on the doors and on the door jambs so we'd be sure to put each door back in the right doorway.  Threw the brass hinges in a pile on the dining room floor.  Left the original steeple hinges neatly piled on the kitchen table next to the paint-boiling Crock Pot. 

And the doors?  They're stacked together against the chimney in the dining room.  Waiting.
Waiting, just like me, for a day off and Mare's trip up here to put another door (or maybe two) back together again.  Sigh...

Those boxes there against the wall?  Don't worry, I'm not moving.  I just have to pack up everything in the china cabinet so I can wallpaper behind it.  And that big cat there?  That's Christopher, wishing he was little and agile enough to jump up on the buffet with Louis.

  1. I've been in DIY limbo lately so I envy your progress! But I've been too tired to care. :-)

    Hopefully, you won't have to wait too much longer.
