i love garbage

ok not really
but I do indeed love to salvage from the curb
especially if it is something we need (or just really want)
there is a sort of rewarding excitement that I get

this here screen door is a perfect example
it was black and missing half of the screen on the bottom
but we fixed problem
nothing a simple (not always) scrape and sand can't handle
we kept the original hinges and handle
added some locally milled Cypress
a few cuts to fit and voila
just my style salvaged, rustic, primitive
found, recycled...
so many of my favorite things

I do need to work on remembering to photo my curb findings before
for accurate documentation of the process

much of our home has been created using such findings
it takes some time but it saves some money
