Little Details

Just a quick post today – things are still feeling beyond me with the hubby away. So I decided to cheer myself up with some diy (😜). I thought I’d share some of the little touches with you.

The first one is the door. I love fingerplates and intricate handles and although I love these brass door handles, I knew I wanted to add something more. So I’ve been hunting out some vintage, french fingerplates on eBay. In the UK these would have been super expensive, but decorating in period style isn’t as popular in France it seems, and these were a good price.

This is the first one I’ve done, and I’ll show you the other side in a few days as it’s a little more in depth. So this is what it looked like (it’s another door as I forgot to take a photo before hand)….

and this is it now….

I love it!

Then the light under the stairs was broken (I tried to take the bulb out and it had rotted inside). So I used it as an opportunity to see if I could change it. It was a bit scary as I haven’t worked with electrics before, but despite blowing a fuse I managed it. This is the before…

and this is after….

I love the Victorian feel (but not the brown carpeted walls).

I’m trying to finish our dining room coving that I recently put up, but I want to share with you an Easter garland I did just before the holiday tomorrow. I’ll include a how to so come back and check it out.

Easter blessings!

La Maison du Sacre Coeur

Hi, I'm a SAHM who's moved to France with my husband and two daughters. My blog focuses on our family life & decorating our 18th century village house here. I'm scouring brocantes to find furniture to revive as well as little special somethings for our home. I love DIY and craft - sewing, painting, whatever. If any of these things interest you I'd love for you to stay and wander through the site - especially if you want to tell me what you think! God bless, Andrea
