Some new uses for some old things

This is an old door I found at a garage sale in Florida while we were at the beach. I actually got 2 for $10 each and my patient husband was able to unpack and repack the van around the 2 doors to get them home. I knew he loved me then! The chair was another garage sale find for $4. I painted it red and gave it a new home as an end table next to the loveseat in the living room. Elements of surprise in the home make it more fun to live in and visit! I will show you what I did with the other door on another post.
