Description: Detail of a door in old building at Sedan in South Australia. Potential use as a theater backdrop. © Su Schaefer 2011 Detail of a door in an old building at Sedan in South Australia.
© Su Schaefer 2011

While my husband tried to get the car exhaust mended I wandered around taking photographs of some of the old buildings, many deserted. The car was eventually mended with a bush mechanic's "part": a drinks can, both ends removed, "fitted" and wired on over the cracked exhaust (much admired by later mechanics). I feel that this design has potential use as a theatre backdrop.

Original photograph, half brick repeat.
[Fabric: 300 ppi, Wallpaper: 176, Decal: 563 ppi - basic repeat]

fireflower says: I like this design. It has a comfortable, "at home" feel to it. In 1/2-yds, seamed end to end, it would make very interesting upholstery on a long bench. Or the equivalent in wallpaper would make an intriguing dado, especially with a stone or stone-look dado rail. One could do companion fabrics for pipings and box edges out of the stonework, the brickwork, and different aspects of the door itself. (And, while it would be a bit extra money and work, it would be fun to have the left half of the photo --- enlarged to life-sized --- on one strip of wallpaper, and the right half on another strip, and put them up as a faux door in an interesting location.)

su_g says: Andrea, this door is on a building in Sedan, South Australia and it really is that high (but the top panel is a window you open to let hot air out) & that lower knob really is the door knob, the lion's head doorknocker is quite large - I posted pictures of the building, door & detail at http://www.flickr.com/photos/66403770@N06/6385556471/ if you want to see the original. Susan, I love your outfit design for it, I will see if I can draw it for my sewing plans! I like your description of African bush mechanics - here we say all you need is chewing gum & elastic - my father could do a lot with swiss knife (called 'the flying workshop'), epoxy resin & soap - mainly re holes in petrol tanks!

susaninparis says: good job. I imagine a cotton voilw skirt in gathered tiers that has been washed, starched, and twisted up to dry, worn with white shirt tied at the waist. On the car repair - bravo too. When living in our five African countries we always drove a car that a local mechanic could fix with a swiss army knife under a shade tree.

edsel2084 says: Bush mechanic implies that this door is in Australia. Where was this door? And is that lower black spot its knob? Seems awfully small for a door knob (or else the lock above is rather big).
