2nd floor Hallway

Project by BeachedBones posted 08-23-2011 05:49 PM 4339 views 1 time favorited 5 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This hallway started out in pretty rough shape. There were fist holes in the walls and hollow core doors. Undersized linoleum, peal and stick tiles, exposed light bulb fixture, and exposed plywood. I kept with the paneling and teak floors that I’ve used consistently through the house. I replaced the light fixture with a cheap one, but am still looking for a better one that suits the room. I replaced all 6 doors, frames hinges handles and trim. The one door at the end of the hallway was a period aprox 100 year old door that a found at a dump site, I stripped, disassembled, reassembled it and painted it. It has a nice full length mirror on the back side.

I really like the hardwood; what type of wood is it?

Well done – what a huge improvement, and, one that no other home will have – the antique door and teak floors – nice touches that makes the place truly one of a kind.

Those are Teak Floors? Really?

I like the way it looks but I have a chance to by some engineered teak hardwood at 2.29 a foot. I don’t think it will look nice on the 300 square foot floor I am considering it for.

The picture reminds me of a Zebra wood finish. (If that’s an actual wood).

Looks very beautiful to me, we like to do home repairs and this kind of finish would be hard to beat at Blue Gum Hills Mens Shed.
