Green Door!

Yeah managed to get in the legend that is Shakey!

Delighted with today's random discovery.

On the weekly trip to Screwfix and B&Q spotted a rather nice front door outside a run down old shop. On closer inspection turns out the owner is the 'Daddy of doors'. Clearly he has found them in various skips, or from builders pulling them out of houses but another mans trash and all that.

So some quick measuring and a trip to his yard later we are now the proud owners of some new old doors and some rather beautiful locks. We are in desperate need of a new front and 2 internals, the locks not entirely necessary, but lovely to look at. Relatively speaking a bargain, a lock that would set you back £40 at The Architectural Forum for £8. They may need a bit of love but, I got alot of love to give. Oh I love a spot of reclamation, made my weekend!
