I was wanting to give you all an update last week on how our faux brick wall is turning out but it has been so overcast and rainy that I have not been able to get any decent pics till today.
Here is a glimpse at the side by side so you can see what we started out with and what we ended up with. Talk about a huge difference! Though it was a lot of work it was well worth it I think.
|The faux brick wall led me to painting the french doors into the office.|
|While I was painting the doors I decided that I wanted to change out the door knobs to crystal ones because I have always loved the charm of crystal door knobs. I was originally wanting vintage ones but was having no luck finding two matching sets. Plus I only needed one side to work and the other side faux. I also knew that Mr. Front Porch would not want the headache of trying to retrofit vintage knobs.I ended up finding some gorgeous vintage inspired glass knobs over at House of Antique Hardware. Because I had a small budget for this project and changing out the door knobs was not part of the original plan I contacted House of Antique Hardware asking them if they wanted to collaborate with me on completing this project. I was so excited when they agreed! They have so many knobs to look thru and after hemming and hawing over just which ones I wanted I settled upon The Egg & Dart Door Set. I then had to choose between 6 finish options.|
|It came down to these two finishes. 'A' is the Antique Brass and 'B' is the Antique Pewter. You will have to wait to see which one I chose and why when I do the final reveal! Which one would you choose?|
Stay tuned for the reveal!
You will not believe the difference the faux brick wall has made in this space. The knobs should be here today so I hope to do the full reveal this week and then a follow up tutorial post on how I achieved the brick look.
