Ain't it gorgeous? Okay, so the walls in the basement still look awful, but we do have a new door that opens and closes and the hinges stay connected to the wall. Also, instead of the tiny, postage stamp window the old door had, this door has a big pane of glass that lets lots of natural light in. You can't imagine how much this changes the feeling of the basement. Doing laundry will be a whole different experience now.
