  1. Thank you so much for sharing my door trim project! I’m going to have to check all these other tutorials out–we’re about to start renovating a house, so I’m sure they’ll come in handy 🙂

  2. These are some awesome things to pin! I love the glass door idea – makes me want some glass doors a little more if I can easily make them look beautiful like that. Thanks for sharing!
