What I made of the yesterday's inspiration...

This is the side of the door you all know by now;)(just to recall ;))
For the other side of the door, here is what I used:
(And a bit of glue of course;)) The cardboard is thiner this time so it was easy to cut:) The pattern just jumped out of my head straight on the paper ;) Also easy to cut - as I am lazy - remember?;) I cut this pattern four times and glued two together so that the hinges were a bit thicker. Except for the big parts you see above I cut also four smaller/narrower parts just to make door looking more interesting. The narrow parts are supposed to resemble the snakes :) The nails in their heads are supposed to be their eyes and are made of the smallest black Svarovski gems I could find - I used them also to cover the holes after the original hinges ;) And here you can see the floor right in front of the door.

To finish the door I need just one more thing...

Klamka czy może gałka jeszcze została! Bardzo mi się podoba jak "zużyłaś" drzwi!

La puerta por dentro esta muy real, me encanta y por fuera te ha quedado como si fuesen serpientes genial!!!
Yo creo que falta por fuera la cerradura no? y la llave.....

Thanks so much Ira!The snakes will probably appear like you skeletons here and there;)

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki serdeczne Zosiu! Tak, zdecydowanie tego brakuje, choć pewnie będzie to raczej jakiś uchwyt niż klamka. W każdym razie coś innego niż w środku ;)

The Old Maid said...

Muchas gracias Ascension. No, it is neither the key nor the lock, they both are inside the office :) It is kind of la picaporte :) Besitos!

Your hinges certainly do NOT look like paper!
They are wonderful and very creative!

Hi, I recently joined your list of followers and today read your blog in one go, so I'm up to date with your project. Very interesting and I will keep following for a while to come. Love what you have done with your door too! And those bricks are a very good idea. One of my sons used them in the past. Must ask what he's done with them.... :-) I think I could put them to good use after reading this. Cheers

Ewa, I like your door very much :). Love the red and how you have "weathered " the edges especially. Your door look strong and sturdy, I can almost hear it creaking.
