This little silver and black contraption represents a lot more than just a door stop to protect the walls at Number 10.
It represents a big change here.
There are only 3 door stops in the house and, until yesterday, all were brass.
Now they are silver/chrome. I purchased new ones yesterday and MONT replaced them for me last night.
I also plan to change over all the internal door knobs.
At the moment they're just the run-of-the-mill passage sets with brass plates.
They'll be changed to chrome
I tried to buy new chrome backing plates, but was told they'd cost almost as much as complete new passage sets. Crazy huh?
I also plan to change over the brass rods on our light fittings, which may all seem like an unnecessary or even extravagant change, but I'm over brass and want to freshen things up a little and I figure this is an inexpensive way of doing it.
The brass fittings won't go to waste. I'll sell them (or try to) so they'll get a new life somewhere else.
