I bought this antique door at a salvage yard. Turned it on its side, routed out the panels, added mirrors, then hung it over two yard sale shelves and added some decorative molding and
hooks. I love this coat rack! It has enough hooks for each of us to have two! #ProudestDIY

LOL... This is GENIUS ! Some things are just ok on this site and others really look great (
just my taste ) because my home is all antiques.. This is one of the projects that really looks classy.. I'm now looking for an old 4 panel oak door.. just when I thought I was done with projects, this comes up...
I am looking at washing machines, Should I get a front loader or top loader? What brand do you like? Sears has this fun color! Boy have things changed.

I just had a long talk with a couple of repair guys who contract with Sears to fix appliances.
I asked how the new front load machines are since they are being pushed as energy efficient and do such a great job of cleaning with less soap/water and supposedly are better on fabric.. I was really surprised to see the look on their faces when I asked. " Off the Record " ? they said... " I wouldn't own one, they said they advise friends and family to find a Late 1990's model top loader.. lol they said the front loaders don't clean very well, need to usually be adjusted to use more water than they are set up for or the soap won't come out and the bearings go out all the time because the shaft the drum is attached to has too much stress on it because it's horizontal rather than vertical... makes sense.. I been thinking I'd like to get a pair because they are cool looking and I'd heard what a great job they do.. Apparently NOT..
