Again the elevator

It's ready. Pfff but before it was there was a lot of cursing around here.
When the doors were the way they look in the former post I was satisfied and glued them in the house. BIG MISTAKE!!!
It looked alright but then I wanted to make photo's and put in the doors to the two shops. It's unbelievable that I didn't notice it before but the elevatordoors were way to big. It looked like crap. So I wanted to take them out again but that was some good glue I used. *&^%@*&
Of course that was impossible without ruining everything. I first went to make myself a cup of tea and then worked on a solution.
I made a new border on the top of the doors and then added little borders on the 'windows' so it would look like the doors can open.
The handles had to come off because they were too high. Of course the paint went off aswell.
Ooo well it's like Murpys law isn't it???
I have some great borders I bought on the Arnhem fair last year and that was just the thing to make a bit like I want it to look.
Not bad but not perfect either. Well I didn't want a perfect house but one that shows its years.
There you have it.......a hall with elevator.

Excuses for the crappy pictures. Some days it's just not meant to be.

Hugs, Monique
