When is a door not a door?

When it’s aJAR, of course!

Or when it’s a wall, like the door below.  This door is in a dance studio in a converted mill building.  I guess I’ve been so focused on my favorite instructor (Hi Ali!) that it took me a while to notice it, but as you can see, the door has been permanently closed, and there’s a perpendicular wall that leaves most of the door in the waiting room and the rest in the studio.  Add a fancy paint job, a light fixture, and some Great Stuff (insulating foam) and voila!  A wall!

    That huge surface bolt is sweet.

    I like it too. The strike isn’t quite as pretty as the surface bolt.
