When we bought our house, we took off all of the doors inside to make it easier to refinish them and strip the paint off of the hardware. Two years later, we are still without 90% of our doors.
Yesterday I started in on the refurbishing process of the door pictured above, which belongs on the closet in the bedroom. Yes, the bottom two panels are missing, and were replaced with window screening. A couple of our other doors (one other closet, as well as the bedroom door leading to the hallway) have this same “feature”. I will, of course, be getting rid of the screening and repairing the doors with new panels of wood.
Can anyone explain this to me? WHY would someone put screening on an interior door? For ventilation? What on Earth would they be keeping in a closet that would need to breathe?!
As a side note, today is St. Patrick’s Day, which translates to a morning train full of drunken college students with shamrocks painted on their faces, and, because I work in midtown, the constant sound of the stupid parade going past my office building. I hate parades. I also loathe public drunkenness. And, you know, green bagels.
