Craigs List Finds!!
I was looking around Craigslist the other day and found the cabinet in the first picture. I do believe that's a window they've used for the door. How cute is that?? : - ) I am keeping the picture for future inspriation...
The second picture was posted on craigs list, too. I called the guy that had 3 doors listed. I'm seeing a headboard in the future of the door on the left!! He said $50 each. I'm definitely interested in the 2 glass doors. (There is a 3rd door in the picture - it's behind the door with the glass, and it has glass, too, only without the dividers.) Hubby and I went today to pick up the 2 doors with the glass, and the guy said he'd take $100 for all three................ and THEN he threw another door in the mix. It's a 15 pane door. He gave me all 4 doors for $100!!! The 15 pane door will definitly be my headboard. I'm still thinking about what to do with the other 3 doors.
Does anyone have any good ideas??? I would LOVE to hear them!!!
Then the door guy told me about a place where they sell antique architecture........ So, hubs and I headed over there. WOW - - this place had OLD doors that were like 5 feet wide by 13 feet tall - that's a SINGLE door, NOT a DOUBLE door. We found 2 identical doors that each had a solid window in the top half, and I think, 2 horizontal panels in the bottom half. In the middle, there was a shelf like contraption on each one. They would be WONDERFUL to make an entry way coat rack thing........... but the thing is.... they wanted $400 for the pair..................well - THOSE doors are still where we found them. They had a bunch of cast iron stars and a few diamonds!! I got 2 stars for $10 each. We also got a very unique door knob with a back plate that had a W on it........... (Incase you hadn't noticed - - I have a 'thang' for monograms....) And the last thing we picked up was a wooden soda box... Since Donna over at Funky Junk interiors has everyone thinking 'center pieces'..... I thought the soda box would be a great base for a center piece!!
I have a couple of projects that I'm working on, but I doubt they will be done by next weekend. I will post pictures as soon as I can!!
Have a great weekend, everyone!!
Hugs !! Suz
