The door to The Cameo seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. You might not’ve ever guessed looking at photos so far, but true to our typical project form, we keep having recurring (yet different) problems with this door. It started way back when we first bought her a little over a year ago and were driving her back (remember all the wall/door flapping?), and since then it seems as though we’ve touched this thing about a bajillion times to get it to close properly. So much so that I’m going to share some of the door-related trials and tribulations we’ve faced to hopefully help save you from going through the same thing. Or at least, give you some tips and tricks we learned along the way to help you fight back if you’re ever in the same boat (and would rather rehab your door instead of buying an all new one).
Today we’re going to share how we:
Fixed the sagging door
Repaired holes in the door’s wooden interior/core (without taking it apart)
Widened the door
Installed a keyless door lock
Fixed some minor flaws and imperfections on the outside of the door
Installed a magnetic doorstop
