After Christmas...back to some renovations and a *new* doodle booklet

This is what happens when I get some creativity and ambition again !

                                                                       I have been busy with a few different projects going on at once.I know alot of you can identify with this. I'm also organizing and re-newing user names and passwords that have been just jotted down here and there..getting them all in the same place and checking to make sure they are still good , etc....
                                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                                                                  OK, on to some new stuff around the house.
          When we started working on this house , one of the first things we did was to take all of the doors off and stack in the basement where some of hubby's wood tools would be.
it's taken all this time to get to them. We kept the bathroom door on, and had a curtain for our bedroom and some closets....sadly I didnt take any pictures of the doors still in place before we took them down but I did find this one with the front entry way closet door open so you can get the idea of what they looked like.
They were plain, 1960's hollow core interior doors. UGHHHHH !!
                                                           Here is what they looked like ;
ok....Hubby sanded...added cheap trim to make it appear as though there are 2 panels on the door, painted them and hung them...He did all the work on these...I love Him so much !! And I love my new old doors !!
    oh, i would like to get new handles also...just one or 2 at a time...they arent cheap ....lol I'd like the rubbed bronze, almost black look.
                                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
                              And....here is my newest Doodle booklet  !! Just in time for Valentines Day..
                                                   Thanks for peeking !

The new doors look great! You are fortunate to have a handy husband. Love your new doodle booklet.

The doors are genius!! I have them in my house. I took several off when I moved here and just threw them in the garage. Now I'm inspired to make them pretty!

What a difference a little molding can make. Hubby did a terrific job.
Stay warm.

I love what you did with the doors. We have those old doors and I hated them, so we have been replacing them one at a time with real wood ones, but this looks a lot cheaper.

You got lucky when you married that handy man. He did a great job and no wonder you are pleased with them. They don't even look like the same ones.

WOW....what a difference.
Isn't it wonderful when our husbands do these kinds of things!
Thanks for sharing your new booklet with us - hope you sell lots!! The patterns are so cute.
