Bless Ken from Fieldstone Windows for the patience he has shown in dealing with our front door. Of course, he probably thinks that now that we are moving forward I have decided on which door we are getting.... bwwwaahhahaaaahaa that would be too easy.
I know Ken thought we were all set but I had a AAAAAHAAA moment over the weekend (Damn long weekends have me looking at my own house too much) which was really more of an AAAACHHOOOOO moment - allergies - and so I rethought it. I don't want a 'too casual' door. I DEFINITELY do not want a country door. I want it to be Notting Hill Posh. BUT it also has to let in as much light as possible given that there's a porch which makes it dark dark dark.
I'm a total traditionalist with my own exterior because it is a red brick Victorian circa 1856. I don't want a fancy colour on my door I want black gloss. I want brass hardware and for goodness sake I WANT A KNOCKER!!!!!!!!!!!! And a mail slot that won't slice my fingers off. I DESPERATELY need a house number somewhere on my house too.
But other than that I'm totally easy right? Don't answer that.
Dirty Birds. Tsk Tsk Tsk.
