Fun Fixtures Found In Foreclosures – Part 2

IMG_5594Doors don’t have to be solid! This bank owned repo has a frosted glass insert with a  Iron grate over the top of it. What’s really fun is the brass door bell mounted in the middle of the door. It’s a mechanical bell that extends thru the door to a small crank handle on the outside. It’s still working and sounds like a bicycle bell from our childhoods. IMG_5592The door itself is raised panel, but the top row is very unique in it’s design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The door hardware is also very old world and charming. IMG_5596 IMG_5595

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The house is in need of a lot of TLC, but it’s just chock full of some very fun fixtures. Yesterday I showed you the wrought iron globe lights in the patio. The RJ reported yesterday that 65% of the homes that sold in June were bank owned foreclosures. Most of them will need some work – or a lot– but there’s some very interesting homes and a lot of really cool fixtures hiding among them.
