Can't wait to see how it turns out!
Don't get too excited. I'm only doing trim right now.
Hey, just saw your post re: handle for floor/wall register. Saw this on ebay in my search for one and looks like yours... hope it helpshttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Grate-Floor-Wall-Victorian-Antique-Black-Vintage-Cast-Iron-Register-Vent-Scrolls-/300838734042?_trksid=p5197.m1998&_trkparms=aid%3D555001%26algo%3DPW.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D18%26meid%3D4743431048532572860%26pid%3D100017%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D5%26sd%3D120995824310%26
Thanks so much for taking the time to send this my way. It's not quite the same pattern, though, and I was also able to find a source for exact duplicates (at a store in Ottawa - 1 hour's drive away) for 50$ each. The grates that I have were originally made in Ottawa (they are stamped on the back), and it's a very common pattern in this area (but they are hard to find in my city). The salvage store in Ottawa had at least half a dozen identical to mine. You can see it in a post I made, here: http://my1923foursquare.blogspot.ca/2012/11/early-november-updates-part-4.html
