The Saga of knobbing the knob

I am back with not being able to go forward with the build yet again.  I can't put walls in the hall space because I can't fit the doors and that has to be done before gluing the walls in because I can't fit the one at the back of the hall once the walls are in.  I can't fit the doors because I haven't found the knobs I want.

The first episode of the saga was that I couldn't find black Georgian ones so I bought some brass ones and tried painting them.  That didn't work so I ordered white ones as a slightly better option than the brass ones.  Between ordering and receiving them, the house went from 1830 to 2015.  Yippee, I can now have whatever I want.








Firstly you have to imagine the door is white....   I think the brass are too big and the white (on white doors)  are too small - now I think I want nickel or bronze or, or, or, or........

It is take a break time and go to something else before I drive myself and you nuts.

This is a good chance to decorate the hall for the third time.  It has been pale grey and deep yellow and is now about to be half paint and half paper!  

Can you believe I renovated a whole real house and other than a few flits back and forth to the shops with mirrors and minor decorative bits, decisions were sooooo easy.....

Oh dear, sorry to laugh Marilyn but you must admit that your posts are amusing at times ~ and I mean that in the nicest possible way :-D I'm sure you will be able to "get your own back" once I really get stuck into the Galleria ~ I've so many ideas floating around in my head that I'm bound to be chopping and changing things around LOL
