The to-do list still stands, mostly unfinished...but here's what I did accomplish today:
I filled in all the holes and cracks and the seams on both sides of the front parlor/dining room door with wood filler. I also filled in the mortise cuts on the un-hinged side of the door and the door jamb.
Then I filled in the holes and cracks and seams on one side of the front parlor/entryway door.
And then I painted. Two coats on one side of the front parlor/dining room door; one coat on the other side. Painted the trim around the door and put the transom hardware back.
And then I painted some more. Two coats on the front parlor/entryway door.
All in all, not too bad for a day's work.
