Free finds...

My husband came home from work yesterday with a van full of "free" doors from a coworker. 
 Any guesses what he's going to do with these eight doors once his school year ends? 
Open a salvage yard?

Practice his lock smith skills?

He hopes to finish the underside of the tree house and turn it into a storage/potting shed and use the doors as part of the structure.
The interior of the tree house is so charming.  The underside....not so much.  I can't wait to see how this construction project turns out this summer.

Speaking of the tree house, look how much our leaves have popped in the last week! Love it!

 I'm still long overdue in sharing gifts from dear blogging friends (Lynne and Erica). I promise to take pictures soon.

What a neat idea. I see so many great projects with neat doors like this. You may want to pick out your fav and save it for a project inside!
