The door with the dark stained glass that had the "Servant's Entrance" sign on it was 35-3/4 x 80 it was trimmed a bit.

I noticed the photos came out large and parts of the before and after features in the photos got cut off. When this happens to others I pull them to my desktop, check 'em out and then toss the copies... That white door with the million bugeye panes is a Home Depot door that the made over "green door" replaced.


The green door transformed to the red one with the lighter background glass are only 32 x 80. That was about the size of the original doors... all of them had to get shaved down and refitted so I lost a bit on the original size. I did the scraping and painting and had a carpenter do all the pesky stuff. My house has 2 front doors and the 2nd one was promised to me by Christmas by the carpenter... he is excellent but busy so I keep getting bumped. It's been over a year since the kitchen door went in. I had a friend who is also a carpenter put in the dark glass door as he unfortunately got laid off on his day job. Been keeping him busy doing all the things my primary carpenter could never get to..and lucky me they are both excellent in what they do!

Farmerjohn, Your door reminds me of a pair I have in the basement I am going to have installed between the back parlor (play room) and my sewing room (which is a back addition). They are exterior doors but I don't care, I love them and the cottage square glass. I also am tired of having their TV oversee everything I am doing in the next room.

That's really how old is that? Wow, that is perfect to restore and use on your house interior doors. Not only you have unique kinds of door because of the stain glass in it, but also this reminds of whatever history that doors attached to.
