Piet Hein Eek had this very creative design idea for one of their client’s foyer wall. They simply covered it with a bunch of old doors, cut and arranged to fit together like puzzle pieces that fill the entire wall. Some of them look worn, others look newer, some are plain, some have patterns. This quirky, rustic melange looks so great against the modern staircase.
Removing compromised glazing putty (looks like Dap-33) is the first step in restoring old windows. A small heat gun on the low setting, a heat shield (in this case, a wide putty knife), and some prying tools (flexible putty knife, dental pick, end nipeprs for pulling glazing points) are what you need to get started.
