...a junker like me is sure to pick it up on the side of the road. I've been decorating with old windows now for some time. Most of you have. Lately I've been seeing old doors displayed in homes in so many magazines. They have probably always been there, but I wasn't seeing them. Saturday, I found an old white beaded board door and knew it was time. I loaded her in my Maxima (it's amazing how creative you can get at hauling something if you're not afraid to look silly) and off we went to break the news to Mr. WLH that he was going to need to hang this monster on the wall. He took it well and hung it with few problems on his end but I didn't like it. The boards used on back to hold it together made it stick out from the wall. ICK. So I had Mr. WLH take it back down and hang it backwards. (Oh yes, and he had to take the doorknob off - which was an old spool- and switch it to the back, too) He rehung it backwards and now it lay flat but wasn't very pretty. Mr. WLH said old barn doors weren't made to be "pretty". Never mind that. I asked him to take off those boards on the back so that I could turn it back around on the pretty side and he laughed and told me that is what is holding it together. So here it is... in all it's gory...I mean "glory". My first door. She's going to take some getting used to but she's growing on me. I don't dare tell Mr. to take it down. Just yet.

Happy 4th of July Everyone! Here is a table scape idea for you for Sunday. And by the way, don't you just hate it when a holiday falls on a weekend? Enjoy your potato salad, corn on the cob, and fried chicken on a pretty table by using a couple of yards of denim material (I purchased at Hobby Lobby). White, red or blue enamel cups filled with lemonade (or use red, white or blue paper cups) Silverware from a dollar store is almost as inexpensive as plastic and is reusable. Place it in a toy sand pail or other portable container like these tin berry buckets painted with stars and stripes. Put in a folded dishtowel as a napkin, and add boxes of sparklers for everyone!
