A project for parking your treasures!July 5th, 2010 in member junk
Our old wooden garage door REALLY had to go! It was old, nasty, dirty, and rotting. Yuck! After our friendly neighborhood garage door man installed a new one, it was in pieces on the driveway. My husband was making a move for it to bring it to the burn pile. I said "Wait! What are you doing? Are you crazy?" and he answered "Are YOU crazy? You can't possibly want that. You can't do anything with it. It's all rotted anyway."
But I had a vision! So I was able to stash it in the yard and this spring he stumbled upon it again. It was time.
So my yucky old garage door became a fun curio. It's certainly not Ethan Allen, but it would be fun and practical in a cottage, bathroom, guys, apartment, etc. It was a bit challenging, even with saving just the best parts it was still a little rough. Except for the chicken wire, everything came from the original garage door. That's what made it fun for me to do.
