New House, Old Doors


Just because a house or an addition may be new doesn’t mean it has to look new, especially if “new” also means “no character!” This homeowner went to an architectural salvage yard and found several old pine doors with a fantastic, mellow patina — and their original brass-plated hardware. After cleaning each door, he simply rubbed on a coat of Minwax® Antique Oil, which both preserved and protects the wood without losing all of its antique charm.

Until next time,
