I just have one find to share with you this week but it is a BIG find! Big in size, and in the fact that I have been searching for this item for over 6 months.
I bought a door at a thrift store! I was in my local thrift store and finally made it back to the household/construction type items corner (this place is HUGE so I try to conquer one area each time I go.) And I found solid wood doors! I have been browsing Craigslist, my local Habitat store, yard sales, flea markets, everywhere to find a solid wood door (less than $75).
I saw this door one day, but wanted my husband’s opinion on such a large item. I asked the price, she said $60 (nothing is priced), and I said I would come back.
So a few days later, my husband and I stopped in to check it out. He said yes to me purchasing it , so once again I tried to find someone to give me a price. I was hoping they would price it lower. And they sure did – she said $25.00! I hope I hid my excitement as I literally skipped away!. Even better, I was shopping with my mom that day and she gets a senior discount (55+) of 25% so I got her to buy it for me. And I walked out the door with a receipt for a solid wood door for $18.75.
The door is actually different on each side. I will probably use the brown side above, but it is nice knowing that I have a second option.
Now you are probably reading and wondering, “What in the world is she going to do with this door?”
This is THE piece I have been waiting on to get started on transforming my guest bedroom. I have furniture in there that I plan to paint, but I needed a different headboard as the mattress completely covers the tiny headboard.
So I needed a solid wood door (for cheap!) to make this….
I can’t wait! And I can’t believe I got a wood door for $18.75. I couldn’t even buy a sheet of MDF for that.
Did you find any thing this week? Have you ever searched for something for MONTHS and then finally found it?
