This weekend marked two years since we settled on our very special place in the country.
We celebrated by working hard on farm house projects.
 
The old master bathroom floor tiles came up,

 

 
{they were blue too} 
 
and down went the new.

 
 
  The door refurbishing project came out of its long hiatus,
 

 
and a set of good old fashioned parlor doors, found in the barn returned home.
 

 
One of them by way of a brief career as a cold frame.

 
 
It wasn't until we found the second door and did bit of house detective work that we discovered their original place and purpose.
Down came the cold frame immediately!
 
All it took was a good scrubbing and some paint.
They look charming and serve to keep the heat from the fireplace in the living room instead of escaping up the foyer stairwell.
 
Much better.

Very exciting to see your project and progress. I was wondering about the master bathroom project. Good idea to bring the French Doors back . . . they will add to the charm.

looks like you had a busy weekend. The doors look much better it situ, but don't you just hate painting/cleaning them, most of our doors are like these!

I'm sure that they made an excellent career as a door frame but like them much more in their new place. One could almost write a children's book about their life!! I can just see it now! I prefer the new floor tiles too.

The doors look fantastic. I also love the neutral tile you chose too. It's always exciting to have house projects turn out the way we want.
