Have you ever hear the saying that someone’s trash is another person’s treasure? While no one is suggesting you go dumpster diving, you might want to keep your eyes peeled when you’re out and about. I was loading up some pallets for my makeshift garden and low and behold I noticed an old door sitting on top of a loaded stack. It was dirty but in pretty good shape and I knew that with Murphy’s Oil that this door could add some charm to my home. I had an idea of what I wanted to do so I grabbed her and loaded her into my truck.
As soon as I got home I took the hose to her and dried her off. I took some Murphy’s Oil to her and she looked pretty once again. Grant it she had a little wear and tear, for I’m not sure how old she was-but given her years I knew she would gracefully decorate some room in my house.
I stood her up with the intentions of being a divider. The possibilities were endless. I could paint a design on her, or hang some pictures on her. I hadn’t made up my mind yet. She stood in the corner of my
living room for one week and suddenly I had a better idea-the perfect place for her was to grace my little hallway with her beauty. I sat her behind my little table added some greenery on top and she glowed like she was a brand new door. She added depth to my small hallway between the bedrooms and it was the perfect place. I decided not to do anything as this used door found in a pile of pallets looked charming just the way it was found-aside from a little polishing…it only needed the right place to stand proud once more!
