Our house located in a rural area of North East Ohio was built in 1965.We purchased this small house in 1966. Now that it is going on 50 years old, and our marriage is approaching that number too (!), it is time to do some replacing, remodeling and updating. (The house, not the hubby!)

All the interior doors were those old hollow cheap-o doors that were now fifty years old. There were four going down the hallway to bedrooms and bathroom. The other was in the kitchen leading to the basement and entrance back door.
We went to Keim Lumber, Charm, OH, and brought home five new solid core, four-paneled white primed doors.
After they were hung I painted them with three coats of Benjamin Moore Advance Satin finish paint. White in the hallway, White Dove on the kitchen door. I used a Wooster Micro-plush 5/16" roller. Absolutely love those Micro-Plush roller covers. The paint dries like it is sprayed on. So smooth.
