Love these, so different.  Like the doors as well.  Unfortunately in our house if it aint broke it stays where it is. :(

I have done the other side!!!

Sorry for the bad photo, but I had to stand to one side to stop the reflections from the window opposite.  The jugs are definitely centered on the panes, although you can't see that properly because of the angles.

This means that I can block off the dining room from the kitchen, so that people can't see that I've taken it over with sewing machines and piles of fabric.   ;)

Now I have to paint the doors cream...

We can see that they are centred @Acorn ... we understand perspective and I think they are lovely! Simples !

Personally I like the doors as they are in their original wood but you must slave over them with the eggshell as you wish.

They look lovely, what a great idea. I agree painting the doors cream will improve them looks-wise, it would freshen them up and look more modern if that's what you're after

Great idea Acorn, they look lovely!  Like you, I like my doors painted - I just don't like painting them!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

I have cream doors.  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x
If your doors are solid wood please think twice about painting them. Someone decided to freshen up my house ready for sale!   :'(
Nineteen big slabs of ugliness and I can't find it in my heart to throw solid wood doors in the skip nor can I find it in my energy banks to strip and paint them.  :(

Nice jugs!   ;)  0_0

Ooh-err, thanks @wrenkins!

The doors are solid wood, but they're this cheap, reddish wood that really isn't nice.  The photo makes the wood look a much nicer colour.  If they were pine or oak, or any other proper wood I would love them and leave them uncovered.  I've painted one set (sitting room to hall), and they are much, much better.  The rest of our doors (ie the non-glazed ones) are painted ones with a fake woodgrain effect moulded into the surface.  I hate them, but at least they are panelled.

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Do you know you can pay people to basically dip your doors in chemicals and strip them? We had it done at work for approx £20 per door. I know it adds up when yo have a lot of doors but different companies might have different deals? They come and collect them, deliver them back and they come out amazingly well.

Thanks for sharing, it’s amazing work!

But more importantly is that a Pfaff expressions 2038 in the background?

No, that's my Husqvarna Viking Topaz 25 (so it is a relative!)  I do have a Pfaff Classicstyle 2025 as well, but it's upstairs.
