Making a custom door, part 4

by brae  

I am halfway through my week off from work, and I have been busy on the contest house!  :D  I've finished working on the custom door.  I cut some Avery silver labels to add some interest around the door knob from ELF Miniatures.  I didn't add a lock detail because all of my attempts fell short of what I wanted.  So, we'll just say it's a smart house and it knows who should come and go.  :D

I like to cut out the underside of the hinge pin to countersink the pin head.  This will keep the door from tipping or floating over the flooring surface.

I painted the door frame Warm White and the base step Neutral Grey, both by Americana.  Here's a sneak peek!  :O

Ok, back to work!  :D

Oh I love the color. Contrasts so nicely with the white of the house. Such a nice little pop. And the ‘watered’ glass is lovely.

I had the same response as BunnyD…that color feels so modern and sleek.

This door combines and transcends all that is good about contemporary modern design. And it’s beautifully executed. Well done!

I love the detail of the sticker; that it mimics the shape of the windows. Lovely colour and lovely door =0)

that looks great Brae! I agree about the colour, unusual for a front door and I like it a lot! I like it that you put the sticker the way you did, off center etc. The glass looks so realistic, great work!

Every time I look at this door and outside wall I am amazed and just can’t help but pull it up and look again. This is what miniatures is all about.
