A few weeks ago, I heard the sounds of construction just down the street.
I kept my eyes peeled for signs of anything awesome in the trash bin but for weeks, I saw nothing.
I finally got brave enough to approach the workers on site this week when I noticed them replacing all of the vintage 1930's windows in the house.
After a few rusty attempts at communicating in my broken Spanish, I was pointed in the direction of the head contractor who was more than happy to load his trash windows up in my car.
He couldn't believe I would want old doors and windows.
To him, he told me, they are just trash.
Unfortunately, I should have approached sooner.
Turns out all of the interior doors (with original glass knobs) had all been trashed several weeks before.
But I wasn't too late to start picking out windows and he told me I was more than welcome to have the beautiful front exterior doors.
So in place of this weeks garage sale finds Friday, I bring to you, my vision for what to do with all of those incredible vintage doors and windows that are laying in trash piles, or lucky for me, some that are now in my garage!
