Making a house a Home!

We have come to realize it takes alot to make a house a home!
Not necessarily alot of money, but alot of time, love and creativity.
Recycling items is a great way to make the best of what you have.
Last year we bought a beautiful victorian looking screen door from Lowes for only 20.00, however it could not take the abuse from kids slamming it and dogs ramming into it so it did not make it to this summer. We took the gingerbread and spindles off the screen door and painted them to match the trim on the house and Michael put them up! They look great! Most of the house look similiar around here so its great to add a little something more for extra charm and character. Eventually we will be adding spindles too.
