Hello my friends! Just a little update on the progress of our renovation project. The doors for the main floor and upper level are almost complete. The finish on these particular doors is a match to the DuChateau hardwood that we’ve chosen. You can see the sample sitting on top of one of our doors in the picture. It took a 7 layer process to get this finish but we nailed it! There is still a french style trim to go along the inside framing of all the doors. I’ve picked the hardware as well which is an oval crystal knob on an oval satin nickel plate. It’s going to be stunning!
Here is a door with a piece of the baseboard laying on top of it plus the hardwood floor sample.
The inside edge will have a french moulding applied (which isn’t shown).
The wood grain shows so beautifully!

I just received an order I placed long ago for some wooden appliqués for the headers on the windows in the house! It was a long, long process as I accidentally sent to the wrong address and they were returned, rerouted and then remailed….omg I had to pay a fortune to get them here, but I’m so relieved they arrived.
The large one is going on the fireplace and the others over the windows in the living room and dining room. All the casings and trims are now ready….we painstakingly raised the grain, applied a combination of stain and paint finish and a clear topcoat and they look sooooo incredible! The appliqués will get the same finish and blend right in…at least that’s the plan
Will post photos of the finished areas once they are done which should be in a few weeks.
