POTD - Locking up shop

POTD - Locking up shop

This is the door hardware from the supposed Post Office that I talked about yesterday.  It's so simple.  A small door knob, a latch that at one point secured the door with a padlock - this was probably replaced with the deadbolt lock.  The painted wooden door has been naturally antiqued by the elements as has the hardware. 

I get excited to see these old rusty items and yet I'm just as thrilled to see a brand new brushed nickle set on a lovely new door.  Maybe a photo of the old stuff in a house with the new stuff?

Talk about Shabby Chic. That is delicious to look at with all the flaky paint, and the rusty components.

Imagine that as a big poster sized picture in a sleek modern chromey apartment. Awesome!
