A Door Project: A really easy project for me ;)

In case you haven’t noticed, we don’t throw away too much in my household. This is mainly due to my husband’s inability to part with anything & everything. Think Paw Paw style: “we may need these old hinges if we ever decide to build our own wine rack” or “you never know when you might want to go retro with an old lighting fixture”.  But, I have to admit, I love it when we can take something & re-use it for another purpose.

Here’s what we’re doing:
My husband knocked out each square of the existing door
He then affixed wooden beams for the legs & 2x4’s for the sides
He ordered custom glas pieces to fit each square
I decided to leave it red & scuff it with sandpaper…my only contribution to this project!
He added 2 coats of lacquer
Oh, I also helped transport it to the porch. This was no easy task, let me tell you!
We are going to order teak chairs that will tie in with the color of the beams. (compliments of my mom)
Come on over for a glass of peach lemonade or a beer!

This picture pretty much sums up my involvement with this project :)
