Our apologies to whoever is keen enough to take out the foyer’s plaster walls at a future date by making your life difficult, but our goal was to preserve the plaster for right now. This also gave us more stability with the plaster while working with the closet door.

Jenn used our new belt sander to sand down the pine floor (that we’ll be restoring later – it’s covered with cardboard and a sheet, for now) around the door area:

The other side we will get to later…
