Round Here

Our orange bedroom door was missing something… Something round…

The hardware! It’s actually about as mismatched as you an get but you’d never know by looking at it. Mortise lockset: reused from our house. Door knobs: cleaned up salvaged pieces given by Rob’s uncle. Escutcheon (part with the key hole): “new” pieces installed in bright brass by previous owners, spray painted by us. New and improved, for way less than a brand new ‘vintage’ looking mortised lockset:

Thumb turn lock: original to door, paint removed as much as possible without the crockpotting method. The keyhole itself isn’t operable right know because we have no key.

These pieces we bought at the hardware store. Still need to do some touch up painting:

Whew, one door down! Bathroom and guest bedroom still to go.

We'd love to hear from you!
