The Red Door

Last stage! We put up the original 1867 pediment above the front door.  It's kind of hard to see in the photo, but taking a cue from the reds peeking through the old chippy paint, we stained the front door streaky Barn Red and Bordeaux Red. Two colors give it depth.

In the Spring, using the original clay bricks from the fireplace and stone from the foundation, we'll add a porch which will tie it all together!

Karen, thank you for stopping by. Renovation is a slow process, but we're seeing more progress than we did for over a year. Yay!
