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...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.
