After Dan & I finished hanging it, we crossed the road and sat
on the bench facing our house to admire it!
That's when he went down into our dungeon and came up with this!
One of the original doors of the house from the 1800's.
Phew...that was hard work!
I remembered we had this old stove pipe flange I had purchased at an
antique shop a few years ago. It was always getting put somewhere or other
without any real home to speak of.
We did nothing to this...the rust appealed to me!
Then it was ready for paint!
Dan cut a hole for the flange to fit into as a window.
He saved all the old handle hardware and painted all of it brown.
Bought some new hinges and painted them as well.
We added our house numbers to the top and some flowers beneath the window
in a window box I bought for $1.99 at Value Village last year!
I like that it has the feel of a Secret Garden...makes you want to walk up to it
and peek inside the wee window, doesn't it?
I'll wait here....
