I still plan on binning this door and replacing it with a new one, but I realize that I'm lazy enough for that to not happen any time particularly soon.
So in the mean time I don't really want to stare at how ugly the old door is, and given that I have all the materials to spruce it up, up it will be spruced.
I'm only doing the inside and sides of the door and jamb though. The reason for that is simple: the previous owners had a dog.
And yes, the back of the door looks just as chewed up as that. I'd need to do a fair amount of rebuilding to fix it, and I'm definitely not interested in going down that route when this door is itself not long for this world.
Sometimes you need to half-ass things while you're waiting on the other half of your ass.
