This is the entrance to our basement on the side of the house.
It was hideous green, and I forgot to take a before picture.
We have a hundred year old house, and 3 doors. We only use this door for accessing the basement, to get our bikes out, etc. It is a good thing too because it is short. To replace it means big buck$, because it is a special order. So, refinishing it is the only option. It has some really nice details in the carvings. You couldn't see these when it was painted.
Look at the doorbell!!
and the doorknob:
