Sneak Peek

Entry to my abode :
I had to redo my front door to do justice to this tribal  figurine door handle,
that I had  picked up on an impulse from a craft bazaar
 then this interesting fish lock had to follow....
 it's strategically placed eyes unlocks the door with the press of a finger, now that is a bummer for anybody who tries to break in!

The wooden parrot bracket had a shiny brown polish all over, so I just sanded it down for a more distressed look. Now I am happy .
My front door now has a new sleek look with a minimalist Japanese design.The frosted glass panels resemble the Shoji screens. One of the glass panels is removed for sliding in the mails. It also acts as the eye-hole  for my door, well hows that for a change!!  

 Friends, so what are you waiting for? Step in!
Your comments and thoughts are much appreciated. 
Hope you have a lovely week ahead!
