Front Door Idea

Saw a similar version of this door yesterday when I picked up my door hardware. The glass inserts were privacy glass and there was no sidelite so it didn’t look so squatty. 

Given my interior door style, I think this would complement everything. They did suggest that I wait to get the new handleset and just put it in the new door so it’ll be down the line, I suppose.

Closet Door Recap

Coat Closet Door Woes

I decided for the coat closet to do a ball catch/dummy lock instead of the standard door handle (so you just pull to open instead of turning the knob or (in my case) a lever. So I ordered it and when it arrived, I noticed it was supposed to be attached on the door surface (no hole is needed) but that wouldn’t work with my door because it was pre-bored.

So, I called Emtek and they sent me a pre-bored door kit. The only problem, the shape wouldn’t allow my square rosette to fit. 

I took it to a local Emtek dealer and they used a grinder so it fits now. They also fixed the threads on one of the screws so I could secure it. 

Picked it up yesterday and installed it last night. Now the door looks very nice. 🙂 

I just need to pick up some powertools and then redo that trim with MDF instead of pine or whatever they gave me.
