this project may look simple, but the result is really fantastic. we’ve all had those cruddy hollow doors in our homes before, and today d*s reader amanda is helping us fix them up with her door-redo project. amanda lives in a 50+ year old ranch style home in connecticut and needed to redo over 12 non-regulation sized doors in her home. unwilling to pay a contractor thousands of dollars to replace all of them, she decided to “dress up” the doors herself. and for under $300 amanda turned her “fugly slab doors” into “applied molding beauties”. it’s such a subtle change, but really changes the feel of the room.
