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♥

  • Z Z on Sep 23, 2012
    I just posted an idea for the Victorian door on picture 2. Hubby just got home from his run or I'd add more.

  • Amber Amber on Sep 23, 2012
    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 TaniaC on Sep 23, 2012
    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 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.

  • Debbie Borthwick Debbie Borthwick on Sep 24, 2012
    Wow, would love to have such a generous friend! Great pieces, so many ideas come to mind.

  • Amber Amber on Sep 26, 2012
    me too. ive been working on some stuff. cant wait to post on here the results.

  • TaniaC TaniaC on Sep 26, 2012
    @Amber I can't wait to see them...♥

  • TaniaC TaniaC on Sep 26, 2012
    @ 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?

  • Debbie Borthwick Debbie Borthwick on Sep 26, 2012
    Definitely agree with signage...can't go wrong with signs! :)

  • Carrie Krumrie Carrie Krumrie on Jul 07, 2015

    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.

  • Sandra Sandra on Mar 23, 2016
    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.
