Living Room Wallpaper Pictures

 As promised . . .

Though it looks like I took pictures from only one angle.  So I'll make do with a shot of my back door with a couple coats of new red paint on it.

And here's the back door lintel spray-painted Rustoleum "Hammered Bronze" . . .

. . . With a little "Before" action to bid a proper farewell to yet more beige:

And here's the vent cover for the 2nd floor hall wall duct spray-painted bronze . . .

. . . because I can't afford the Arts & Crafts style register I really want and this will have to do.

And oh, yes, here's a the new middle mortise for the new-old screen door:

Once I sanded the paint off the doorposts I found traces of the original surface-mounted hinges, which later were supplanted by the mortised ones, and later still with the aluminum screen/storm assembly.  But barring the latter, always before there were only two screen door hinges, top and bottom.  My door, however, came with three, and all three are going in.

Checking In

No business being up this late, but wanted to check in and say work is getting done around here.  The screen door still isn't installed on the back, but I've got a lot done with sanding off the old paint on the doorframe (so it'll fit!), cutting and sanding stock for to make stops for both the inner and outer doors, painting the steel lintel, and so on.

Frieda* came over this evening for a couple hours and we got some more of the red Owen Jones wallpaper up in the living room.

Pictures?  Yes, I should post pictures.  But my computer is slow and maybe, just maybe I might get called in to work in the morning.  Which could be in three hours.
