Front Door Too
26 March 2005
A few hefty boards of Spotted Gum were acquired from Urban Salvage in Spotswood
for our front door, and Jonni happily turned from bricklaying back to carpentry
I It was no easy task to carry the door into the entrance hall and hold it upright
while Jonni screwed the hinges on.
I won't tell you about the bad language I could hear while he was fitting the lock!!***
I bought this wrought iron dragon knocker almost twenty years ago
in the hope that it would one day be attached to the front door of a mud brick house
Today was finally the day!
We were lucky to find some 'Florentine Bronze' hinges which look really
so much better than brass or chrome
I quickly got busy with my brush and a pot of tung oil to finish off our
Now we're waiting for the first visitor to make us leap out of our socks
with shock - as the knocker makes quite a noise!
