A handle.

That's the last thing to finish work on the office's door:) I was thinking of something plain and simple - that means: to buy from Emporium or somewhere else:) But then there were a few posts about Rick Pierce around the Blogland and I thought I would like something alike he is making. So I took the box with metal jewelery parts I love to collect;) I picked three parts up.
See? I saw it at once ;) On the picture above you see the close-up of the wall and floor in front of the door:)You can see the eye of the snake too ;)
I put two parts together by pressing them hard with pilers. Then I painted them black. And glued three party together - it was quite hard to do actually but finally metal parts gave in and joined each other together ;)
And the door are finished.
Still think that this wall needs some last tauches: the light? Or a chair? What do you think?

Oh my goodness, Ewa, that is GORGEOUS! Bravura work, my dear! Maybe a little light would emphasise your creation nicely, but it will have to be a really atmospheric light to be as good looking and appropriate as your door :)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Michelle! Glad you like it:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so so much Nina! (for a moment I thought you've already left for England ;))Hmmm light then! I need to find something really properly looking ;)

Susanne said...

SO good, Ewa, both the door and the handle. I also have that little bead/ornament-thing too, but I never thought of using it that way. Very creative!
Love, Susanne

Tabitha Corsica said...

Very creative...looks great on the door. And it is a light that you need on that wall...and maybe a bench also..

The handle is fantastic! Ray Storey has this fab Tudor wall torch http://www.raystoreylighting.com/tudor/index.htm

I think some moss between the tiles would look quite nice :)

I love love love it! That knocker is amazing and the door looks so cool with that ironwork look! I really am inspired!! Kate xx

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Suzanne! I am glad someone has the same "hobby"!;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Tabitha! Yes, the light is most certainly going to be there. I don't know about the bench - Snape probably would prefer the students to wait standing;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Pan! Glad you like it!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Michelle! I really was thinking so...;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Ira! Specially for the link! Will think about that moss...:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kate! Hope to see some minis of this inspiration on your blog soon!:)

Ascension said...

Has conseguido que parezca un picaporte viejo en años, genial!!!
Con los herrajes de la puerta queda fantastico.
Quizas una luz quedaria bien, pero una luz que no alumbrase demasiado, para no perder esa magia, que tiene la fachada y la puerta.
Enhorabuena, un magnifico trabajo!!!
besitos ascension

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Ascension!That's what I am going to look for and hope it will not spoil the so-far-effect;)Besitos!

Debbie said...

This looks totally amazing. I love the handle and the finish on the Door. Brilliant..xxx

Annie said...

What an awesome idea... would never have guessed that it was just made by jewelry findings! Everything looks so great...

KC-Design said...

That door is looking such wonderful!! I love it.

tom pouce said...

Wonderful job you've done so far! And I agree with you : why buying already made things when we can do beautiful items such as your handle just taking some bits and using our imagination! I love creating from scratch and am deligthed also when other people do!
For the wall, I agree with Ira: some moss should look nice. And why not a torch?
