Dumpster Diving

So the other night a little after midnight I was still awake...I'm usually passed out by 10!
 I had passed this dumpster in a parking lot near my house for over a week and kept seeing a large door laying on top.
Seeing as how it was late enough that no one should be out in the parking lot, I went for it!

I am GLAD I did!

8' wood door in almost perfect condition. Along with a few other scrap wood pieces.
The very next day the dumpster was removed, so it was meant to be:)
My ceilings are 9'...thank god or it wouldn't have fit.

Please don't mind the mess all around. I'm in the midst of re-doing the dining room. I am working on re-finishing the dining room table. The fish tank that we now have our gecko in needs to find a new home, but I dont' have anymore room in our town house!!!

I'm going with a more Rustic, Vintage, Farmhouse feel for our dining room and the door will go PERFECTLY!

How awesome are these doors?

My space is MUCH smaller than most so I know it won't really ever look like this picture...but a girl can dream right?

I just love this chippy orange one.

Or, I would love to put it on a track to make it like a barn door!!

And of course Miss Mustard Seeds post on old doors for decorating!


And...when my mother has her wedding this year I will be helping with the decor. I SOOO plan on doing this with little desserts on it.


This idea is just Adorable!


  1. Lucky! The door looks especially great with that chair in front of it!

  2. Awesome find~I never seen anything good in dumpsters!
