Bill has been traveling to Belgium for his work there lately, and took a picture of these old painted basement doors in Amsterdam. We both love the idea of adding scalloped lead trim to the top of our refurbished old basement doors after painting them with a marine quality paint also. The paint will match our back door blue from "Fine Paints of Europe" which Bill discovered on an earlier visit to Holland.
Here are the doors to the old basement at Old Farm which will have lead sheet trim I found at Home Depot and sold by the 12" wide roll for about $30.00. It will be cut with metal shears to scallop and the rest we'll use to cover a few foundation lead trim breaks. This door is very visible when you arrive at Old Farm, so the look will be obvious.
