I realized doors could be pricey, and maybe I’m a bit cheap…but wow.
$2500 for a door? NOT including installation?!?! Is it plated in gold? Will it open itself for me if my arms are full of groceries? Will it let out a warning siren if someone breaks into it?
Granted, it was very pretty/sparkly/solid in an imposing type of way…Wrought iron played heavily in the design…but I can’t justify spending more on the front door of my house than what I spent on my first car.
(So yeah. My first car was cheap…whatever. I looked cool in that convertible…though it’s not too hard to look cool in -10 degree weather with only a tarp as a roof…)
But, after two different retail locations, M and I decided on two that we liked- one for the front and one for the back. We now just need to figure out timing, installation, which kidney we’d like to sell off for payment, stuff like that.
And while I’d love to post a picture here of the new door- you’ll just have to make due with the link. (It’s the Prairie Bevel 3/4 lite on page 18- and perfect for the Prairie stained glass in the living room).
PS- Some have asked, and the Prairie Bevel door we chose did NOT come to $2500- much less. My frugal side won that battle!
