I know there’s has been a lot of decor posts lately – I feel like I’ve been living in between Church feasts, but I am starting to look toward All Saints and All Souls in terms of decorations I want to craft and share. In the meantime though I’ve been finishing off the dining room as well as doing some upholstery in the living room.
So I thought I’d share this quick post that shows you the full dining room doors (the close up off the salvaged carving above the bi-fold doors you can find here). Here’s the painted bi-fold doors….
I love the slight gold highlight and the colour makes the handle stand out beautifully. The bolts I’ve just spray painted gold as they’d been painted white previously.
The latch is actually a modern one that I bought here; it wasn’t expensive, but I’m really pleased with how it fits the period of the doors.
The other door in the room is this one…..
Here’s a close up of the handle….
It’s actual the sign for Mary, with an ‘A’ for ave interlaced with the ‘M’ for Mary and the inscription ‘the most blessed’. As this is going to be the formal dining room for celebrating Christmas, Easter and other feasts it seems appropriate. Particularly when the main feature in the room is the medallion here.
