Thank you thank you.... :)

Once upon a time like two weeks ago, the hubby and I were
walking to our local coffee shop and happened upon
a lil treasure in the trash.

Thank you thank you person who threw away this door.

We replaced the old front door with it:)

I love how my hubby just couldn't stop there and had to 
cut it into a dutch door:)

and I love how my son vacuumed while the sanding was happening so 
my brand new clean floors stayed clean:)

I love how they painted it crisp white:)

And I love how they did all this and sent me pics so this blog post
could happen:)
Thank you thank you boys:)

 I got to head to AZ a few days ahead of them and 
spend time with my BFF Terry. 
This pic was taken after we spent the afternoon kayaking on
Saguaro Lake- shark free.
Thank you thank you Jesus:)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

  6. Help me understand. They cut it into a dutch door after they hung it?

    1. Yes, and this is his explanation-
      I installed the door into the jamb with four hinges, clamped a fence to the door and ran my circular saw along the fence to make the cut, to guarantee proper alignment.

    2. You are my Dutch-Door-Savin'-Amazeball-Heros!!
