Hi Everyone!  I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again and again and again.  I LOVE FREE STUFF!  I wanted to share with you some of the things I got for free.  One of the truck drivers that I worked with at the Grain Elevator called me up and asked me if I'd like a few things that he and his wife had been storing but knew they weren't going to get to.  And of course I said YESSSSSS!

This all came from a house that was torn down.  It had been built in the 1880's and before it was torn down he and his wife went through and salvaged as much of it as they could. 
 They gave me three solid core, hardwood doors.  One was painted on one side and stained on the other side.
 The other two doors were stained.
 They gave me two cornice boards.  They need a little bit of work but won't they look great?  It's just calling out to be painted and for pegs to be added.  Maybe some numbers??
 Or maybe it needs to have a sign painted on it?  Isn't it gorgeous?
And I got two of these giant windows.  Can you imagine this painted??
It still has the hardware on it.

I'm so excited to get started on these new items.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the doors.  They are from the same era as my home.  And I'm almost thinking of you using one or more of them in my house.  So what would you do with these?  Do you love free stuff as much as I do?  Thanks for stopping by.
