Over the weekend, Neal and I stopped in one of our favorite places, The Habitat for Humanity Restore. We scored big with a metal door and frame for $35. Never mind that it is pink on one side...
that's what paint is for, right? Have you priced new metal doors with frames lately? For $35, I can live with the pink for quite a while!
Just when you thought there would never be another bargain as good as a $35 door, it gets even better! We found three cabinets for the kitchen for a total of $75! Have you priced new kitchen cabinets lately...
especially ones with these nifty pull-out drawers? Another couple was really eyeing "our" cabinets, so when they walked away to browse some more, Neal ran off to find an employee to tag the cabinets "sold". I lurked from the distance, not wanting to be identified as the cabinet thieves.
We changed our minds about doing the ceiling in galvanized metal and went with a bead board type wood. Neal and a buddy worked on putting it up in one day. All that's lacking is a small area around the light fixture in the bathroom.
Speaking of the bathroom...here it is! Fully equipped with a dual flush toilet, pedestal sink and tub/shower with a massaging shower head. Who says you can't have luxury in the country?
I know, I know. You just don't believe it can get any better, right? Well, hang on to your hats, it does! We now have a phone line at The Ranch! Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus and he is alive and well and living in the country!
