I've always wanted to make a privacy screen from doors. I don't know why..it just sounded like fun. I found these at our local thrift store for $8. I had to have them!

I found two vintage wood folding chairs at Goodwill for $5 each. As soon as they put them out I knew I had to have them I waited paitently for a man to walk away from them so I could swoop in and grab them! As soon as I saw these beauties, I knew what type of makeover they'd get.
I madeover a sweet friends front entryway for a housewarming gift. The house was darling, but the entryway, was bland and brown..lots and lots of brown! She didn't know where to begin to paint a front door, what paint to use or even if her front door was already painted in latex.
If I had 15 minutes to pack up what meant most to me, I would head right for my desk and take the things my kids have made for me over the years. One of my favorites is the keepsake Mothers Day planter gift my son made me when he was little.
