A friend gave us this antique window, and I really love it. Thank you Jimmy and Dee Dee! We repurposed it into a medicine cabinet door. Bob recessed it into the linen closet, a great use for unused space. Can’t have too many cabinets and storage places.
This is the door jam and frame for our front door. Bob is welding 1 1/2″ square tubing for the frame. The Jam is 1 x 3″ rectangular tubing. It pays to have a metal artist for a husband! These are all scrap pieces he has had at the shop for a long time.
I rarely take photos from this viewpoint, I love this view. Oh, and also here is a great view of our sunset, and Bobs cigar from last night.
We found this mini-corrugated tin, very unusual, in a metal salvage yard. Left it outside for two years and it’s finally starting to rust, just the patina I like. We also installed lights, a ventilator fan and the trim that goes up against the ceiling. I can’t wait to show you the medicine cabinet door, a gift from a friend.
We found these cute exterior windows at an antique store, and decided to use them inside our house, as a wall divider. I like to give old things a new purpose. (Make your jokes here Uncle Steve, I know you want to 😃)
This table top made it out of the house that burned down back in 2000. We “aged” it further and stained it. It’s now our bar top on the island.
