I Almost Ran Over an Old Guy on a Moped.....

On Monday I literally almost ran over an old guy on a moped and raced a trash truck for this.....
Can you say solid wood cabinet doors, 4 feet tall?  I say love!  On Monday morning I was dropping the girls off on my way to work and I spotted them, but I was already running late for work and couldn't stop.  So I dropped the girls off and went to work, thinking about the doors all morning long.  I had meetings scheduled for the morning so I couldn't even run up and rescue them, so my meetings got out a few minutes later and I hopped in the car and raced home!  And there they still were, I beat the trash man 2 minutes!
And here they stand beside my house.  This is my husband and my conversation when I drug him outside to see what I found.

Husband: What are you going to do with those?
Me:  Not quite sure yet, I will come up with something.  They are amazing and they are solid wood!
Husband:  You are going to turn our house into a dump.
Me:  No I'm not, they are amazing and free!  I rescued them!

Needless to say he wasn't nearly as excited about my find as I was.  So the place card order is 75% complete which means I will be able to work on more of my projects!  Happy 9 o'clock Dance of Joy!

I think I've seen doors re-purposed as great headboards for beds. Would that work?

Whatever, you do, have fun with your project!

So awesome! I love a good rescue. Funny thing. when I was little this was my mom, and we would roll our eyes in embarrassment. Now I love it!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
Can't wait to see what you come up with for those.
