  1. Repairing an old Van Buren

    Okay!! Thank you,Thank you, Thank you!! Doors are in!!! Sides are on!! Front us setting and tomorrow I head out of town for my nieces spelling bee! I need a break! Haha!!! Wall paper in front needs to go in along with baseboards and crown molding then the task of building the 3rd floor and restoring that whole mess!!!!  Man, I feel like progress has been made- FINALLY! Yes!!!

    Okay thanks

    Okay!! Man can I make things long! I have a small closet door in but I’m hearing a clicking noise? What have I done wrong before I move on? 
  4. Repairing an old Van Buren

    To clarify..Yes you think glued baseboards back to back would hold a pin on the bottom transition? 
  5. Repairing an old Van Buren

    Sable, I had an idea about using double edged trim so the step into each room is flush with the floor for smoother transition. Of course my baseboard moulding won’t work but I do like the idea of it not being raised. Oh well... I doubt gluing the two baseboard edges together to only then Preston a hole for the pin would not be as stable as your original piece of transition would on the bottom. But if I had a decorative board on each side to do this I might try. Does that make sense?

    My brain is fried tonight and what you wrote makes sense. How long is best to set glue on transition boards to door?

    Well now, I just don’t believe that! Y’all have such great ideas and experience with all this tedious stuff- I don’t know what I’d do if I hadn’t stumbled upon this site!  I’m going to start first thing in the morning. Just now getting home and woke up at 4 am thinking about these darn doors!  Do you recommend letting the pins all dry overnight tomorrow before setting in the doorframe?

    Wow! you’re amazing what awesome details!!!!!!!! I’m in town today ( I live out in the boonies) so I’ll definitely be all about trying this tomorrow. What a relief-I think I can do this! I’ll keep y’all posted! 
  9. Repairing an old Van Buren

    I can absolutely do that. 
  10. Repairing an old Van Buren

    I watched a tutorial with fabric and a pin and I’m wondering if I removed one side of trim and glued one side under the trim and the other to the door edge if that would work 
  11. Repairing an old Van Buren

    I like the pin idea just not sure how I’d go about it

    So there is no real transition in the bottom it’s interesting. I thin strip of wood between rooms is all on the bottom and it doesn’t appear to be the floor beneath in any of the doors. 
  13. Repairing an old Van Buren

    Yes I know you’re right. I’ll be in town tomorrow and that’ll be s nice distraction! Appreciate all your advice! 
  14. Repairing an old Van Buren

    I’m sure there’s a way!!! Haha  Praying I figure it out soon-my house is a disaster! 
  15. Repairing an old Van Buren

    So as you know I’m restoring the house my mom made me 40+ years ago so first I love the front doors so I want to keep them. I’ve also already repainted all the trim around all doors, wallpapered, restained floors and any trimming she stained as well as the doors. The thought of messing especially the wallpaper up by replacing is awful. So by purchasing new doors and frames I eliminate hanging  the doors I have?
