Removing door in the bathroom

We were challenged with a bathroom renovation project that included removing a door that separated the commode/shower area from the double sink vanity.  The door was confining the area, restricting access to a linen closet and always seemed in the way.  The most cost effective way to alleviate the problem was to simply remove the door, however, the door jamb has “cut outs” in them for the hinges and strikeplate. We solved this by filling the holes with stainable wood filler,  stained the filler to match the existing wood trim and went as far as coloring wood grains similar to the existing wood trim. The finished product was practical and inexpensive.
