With my new style Half Stockbroker, the front door is through the porch into the kitchen. The door was not fitted so I don’t have a picture or what it was like originally. It now has a nice coat of dark green paint.
As with all the hinges, they had a good coat of various paints, I wanted to use as many original parts as I can. So out came my trusty Dremmel fitted with a wire brush wheel I got to work. Some of them were also slightly bent so had to be tapped gently with a hammer to put them back into shape.
Luckily the door had all its original door furniture, door knocker, letter box and door knob. Being a little dull with age, out came the Dremmel again.
I am really pleased with how these came up, and are now ready to fit on the door, which has been painted.
I used the orininal nails to fit the letter box and door knocker back into place.
This is the outside wall with the new front door fitted to it.
