    Hi Sue. I love your projects. The Wainscoting is my favorite. Sorry for the loss of Simba. Thank you for sharing your wonderful page.

  3. Hi and I am happy to hear you’re going to update your old doors too. It is so refreshing to have the new doors so you will love it. You’re right that I did not go into detail on the trim and thank you for pointing it out as it did not cross my mind since the doors were so up front in my mind at the time. We are doing the ceiling now and I’ll be sure to include the trim for that if I can. Have the nicest rest of the weekend Batya.

    This is a wonderful project. I love how you described it. It made the whole task nice and simple. There is one little part missing though. At the beginning when you showed the doors you bought for the project you also show the trimming to put around the new doors. I was hoping you would show how you installed that trimming also. I Have the same kind of old doors and will update soon. Thank you so much for the step by step explanation. :0)

  5. It is soo nice to hear from you Bonnie and thank you for such a nice compliment too. We do miss Simba and our daughter thinks like you in that he will be with again one day too. I love your description “house adventurers.” Have a great rest of the day.

    How good, comforting actually, to see you in my email this morning! It’s been quite awhile since I’ve seen one of your posts. Your hallway is lovely and the tutorial on the doors is much appreciated. However, I’m sorry to read about Simba. It sounds as though he had a wonderful life in your home and it’s my belief that he’ll be with you again one day. Family is family; the number of legs is irrelevant.

    Hope to see more of your house adventures soon!

  7. Glad you like the doors and I sometimes still get a little giddy when I see our new doors and how nice they look.

  8. Great article and thank your for your advices.
    I plan to change my kitchen door this winter, it will help me a lot.

  9. Thank you for such a sweet comment. We put up some more doors this weekend so I feel like we are making progress. I will for sure be posting when the hallway is completed.

  10. We lost our sweet cat about a year ago and it was so hard – so sorry for your loss. Your hallway is looking amazing. Love that you did the doors yourself! Can’t wait to see more – happy Sunday!

  11. It’s odd to not have a cat in the house, but it has been the hardest on our daughter. Hey, thanks for the great encouraging words, we drink that up like Kool-Aid.

  12. So far so good on the hack. We are thrilled with the progress so far on the hallway and hopefully the ceiling and lower walls will turn out and look as stunning as the Dream Home.

  13. Our daughter has been devastated the most about Simba’s passing so thank you for saying that about him. I love getting up in the morning and seeing new trim, doors and fresh paint and we are enjoying this project most especially.

  14. Thanks for the positive feedback Cyndi, it means a lot. We put up some more trim today and I’ll do a post on the hallway when it gets done. 3 more doors to do yet and one set of storage doors I need to find special knobs for.

  15. Hi Julie, I love getting feedback on our projects, so thank you, thank you. All this doing it ourselves is rewarding, but the projects take longer to accomplish.

  16. Simba is such a beauty, Sue. I’m so sorry to hear of your sad news. I’ll bet Anya is missing him, too. Your new doors look great! We added those same doors in our house, but decided we weren’t skilled enough to install them ourselves. Kudos to you!

  17. What a project and what a difference as you look down the hall – no? Sorry to learn about Simba – they leave such a hole in your heart when they go!

  18. Aww Sue I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Simba! Pets are not just pets they are family too. Your doors came out incredible!Love the look and that you saved so much with getting the slab doors. I just love seeing your DIY posts! They are very inspiring.

  19. I’m so sorry for your loss. Pets are such a great part of a family. The doors look fabulous and such a great cost saver to go with the slabs. This hack is turning out stunningly cant wait to see the final reveal.

  20. God bless Simba’s little soul. So sorry for your loss Sue. I love the doors! You guys made it look so easy too. Great job as with all the work in your home. Can’t wait to the hallways!
