Poor decision making

At this stage in the game, a multiplicity of ticky-tack little jobs have replaced the big jobs (tear down the walls, put up drywall, etc.).  Now we're busy doing things like painting radiators and installing doorknobs.  The closet door in this picture, for example, represents several hours of labor.  I had the brilliant thought that rather than buy a new one, we'd repaint and reuse the existing door.  Which is a good idea, in theory.  But when you've had at least three people trying to get decades of dust and dog hair out from between each slat, then sanded, primed and painted, you realize that maybe a new door wasn't such a bad idea.
