A friend of mine told me a while back that he had some wood stuff that he had and wanted to know if I could use it... Not knowing what stuff he had I couldn't pass up Free stuff especially if it was wood... Well Yesterday he showed up and unloaded it near My Garage...I was in the middle of cleaning my brushes out cause I had just finished clear coating the cabinets that I am making and didn't realize until he had almost finished unloading the back of his pick up truck That he was out there...I walk outside and saw 3 doors stacked on top of a huge pile of wood products ... HMMMM What Goodies did you bring me I asked and he said Ah Just some doors and other stuff that I think you will like.....and before I could say anything but "Thanks I can't wait to see what under there" he told me he was in a hurry and had to be some where... I waved and thanked him again as he drove away down my long driveway... With the look on my face of Oh Boy I can't wait to have a looky.... Well here is all the stuff that he bought me ...I almost Cried with excitement..... Wow I can't wait to make some awesome stuff out of these....Take a looksy to at what he left... Maybe You can give me some ideas on what to do with all of this...I also discovered that there is an old antique Bed amongst all of these goodies..:) I love my Friends♥

    Thanks Ladies This is just a small portion of the stuff I have scored over the years ..I ended up with the wood from My BIL's Shed he tore down I have all kinds of planks and boards and old cabinets that hubs gets when the renovate stuff at his work My other Friend that Susan mentioned Cleared out his garage and gave me all the goodies...So Yes Now All I need is some motivation..:)

    I just posted an idea for the Victorian door on picture 2. Hubby just got home from his run or I'd add more.

    oh you totally scored! that door is amazing. i seen someone on here had a door like that and they put a shelf at the bottom of the window section and then put a piece of board in the window and painted it with chalk paint. it was so cute. but i would probably hang the door on a wall and hang a mirror in the middle and still add the shelf.

  • TaniaC

    OOOO Amber I totally love your Ideas ...I was thinking the same thing with putting a board where the glass used to be and using it as a chalk board and display it on the wall somehow... I never even thought of the mirror idea that is a great idea too ...OOOO Now what to do??? Thank you so much♥

  • Z
    on Sep 24, 2012

    Oh I love the mirror idea. It think if I did that I would add a bench seat, add some hooks on either side of the mirror and have yourself a unique hall tree prefect for your entry. Great place to remove shoes and check yourself just before you head out the door.

    @ Replying to the message you left on picture #3 I was thinking the same thing .... I'm debating on whether to separate those pieces or not... The 4 pieces in front are actually part of an old antique bed but to try and restore it Would probably be a lot of work.... The 1st and 4th board in front would make an awesome display board for a scrolled saying up on my wall ..What do ya think?

    I can see an entry way bench out of the middle door. Fill the glass area with a mirror, build the attached bench below it using some of the decorative wood he gave you. Hooks on either side to hang coats, hats, etc. I can see it in my grandma and grandpas house now. They called it a hat rack.

    That door would become my new front door. WOW! And whatever else I could think of doing would be worth all the work just to have the door.
