Awesome Finds!

After my disappointing shopping excursion yesterday, I was so excited when I stumbled upon the website for Old Is Better Than New.  I visited their online photo galleries (complete with measurements and prices!) and their Facebook page.  I made an appointment with the owner for today…..and was NOT disappointed!!
Not only did my mother find a great door for her guest room headboard project (for only $50), but I found a door (only $50 including cool keyhole hardware), an old Dr. Pepper crate (my favorite soda!), and a beautiful stained glass window!  DSCN7548

I have wanted a window like this for such a long time, but they are so pricey.  This one has a small piece of lead missing (no biggie to me) so it was on clearance and I got a discount for visiting their website and FB page....what a deal for $40!!

Now decision time:  Where and how to hang the window??  Do I put the crate on the kitchen wall (like a shelf) or leave it as-is on top of the cabinets??

I know what I want to do with the door……more to come on that project.

What a happy treasure huntin’ day!
