We had saved all of the old hardware from our garage doors when we replaced them ourselves. Yes we not only saved about $400 per door and but we got some awesome vintage looking pulleys, springs etc. in the process.
Well, I finally got around to using at least one of them. You might recognize my door from my TV stand mash-up. Once I got my new credenza, the door went to the basement until I decided I wanted to use it in my house some other way.
I was moving my pulleys for about the fiftieth time when I finally said to myself....."Will you do something with one of these for Pete's sake?" Now who is Pete we don't know but he lives somewhere in this house because I do a lot of projects in his name. I have yet to see him but I like how he motivates me.
Kinda boring except for that awesome artwork by my son.
I think it is always good to show the mess that our projects create lest you think I have the perfect home. I know this sounds like crazy talk to my family and friends who KNOW I do not have a perfect home and knew that this stayed like this for, say... about a week.
Husband=patience of Job.
I think it might have been worth it....
I love the vintage industrial vibe that it has and it only cost about $12. It makes a much bigger impact and in my opinion, it beats the usual things that get hung on the wall.
Come back tomorrow to see how this was done and maybe this will get you thinking of some new and different ways to add decor to YOUR walls.
I hope your Labor Day produces something grand!
