When the door met the trimThursday, July 10, 2008
With the first coat of stain on the door in the basement, it just didn't look quite the same as the trim in the girls' room, so we carried it up to the third floor to get a closer look, and indeed, they look quite a bit different. One possibility (though I'm no expert on woods) is that the doors are Chestnut - I'd heard that many of the homes in the area have a fair amount of Chestnut, though it's quite hard to find in the U.S. today. Anyhow, here's how it looks up in the room...

which isn't too bad, but it is certainly not a match for the trim...

We're going to look into either applying a second coat to the door, or maybe getting a slightly darker stain that may match better...
