The Interior Door Shop is sponsoring an "ugly door" contest here (thanks for the link, EgE!), and I've decided to enter. I hesitated, thinking that it would be just for folks who have doors that are all beat up and broken that would qualify, but I hate my awful interior doors so much that I had to enter.
I can only imagine the beauty of the doors that used to be in this house, which was built sometime in the first quarter of the 20th century. I'm sure they were wood, certain that even if they were plain or a little damaged, they had real character.
But the previous owners, who could see nothing more in this house than its rental potential, somehow decided that "new" was better (or, more likely, easier than doing a little fixup on the original doors), and of course "new and the cheapest we can find"was best. So now, all of our interior doors are these hideous white plastic fake-wood texture pieces of crap that I hate, hate, hate. Where they're worn or damaged, you can see the sawdust underneath the plastic. These will never develop the character of real wood, they'll just deteriorate into the depressing look of an old cheap depressing apartment on the wrong side of the tracks.
I chose this picture to post because it shows both the regular interior and the ill-fitting closet doors - see how the closet door is not quite closed? That's because that's all it will close because they framed it wrong, and since they're cheapass sawdust doors instead of, you know, REAL WOOD, they can't easily be trimmed down to fit. And as you can see, both the interior and closet doors are of the same cheap nasty materials, throughout the entire house.
