Refurbished doors

Why is it so hard to remember to take "before" pictures?


These were closet doors, made from plywood and a framed edging.


They had been stained and varnished in one of those old brown colors.
If you've ever dealt with old houses/furniture/woodwork

The varnish wasn't glossy, so I didn't even bother sanding.
