Habitat for Humanity Restore Finds

Here are a few small projects that we have been working on lately.  We took a trip to Habitat for Humanity Restore in Orem and found a few treasures.  I haven't posted about our big projects yet because they haven't been completed yet.  The kitchen cabinets are complete but we haven't put on the hardware yet.  Cody completed the backsplash.  We haven't painted yet or gotten new window treatments.  In the meantime, we've been working on a few small projects (Not quite ready to start anything big yet).
We found a couple of cool cabinet doors for $1 a piece! We thought that they would look cool as frames so Cody took his 'jigsaw' and cut out the middle.  I am going to paint them and glaze them.  This is just a sneak peak.
We have been wanting to redo the entry way because we aren't a big fan of the 90's generic tile.  We've looked for laminet wood flooring at Home Depot numerous time but we didn't want to buy a whole box for such a little space.  We also didn't like any of the cheap colors and weren't willing to spend too much money.  At Habitat for Humanity we lucked out and found this laminet wood flooring for $1 a slat and we really liked the color! It ended up costing less than $10 (luckily I get the labor for free). It turned out pretty nice if you ask me.
A while back I found this old cabinet door there and knew that I wanted to make a sign for our front door.  I finally got around to it.  It cost a total of $2!

We found this piece of wood there for $1 and I thought that I would like to make a sign for our front room.  We made this one tonight.  It cost a total of $3.  Once we paint we are going to hang it and put some pictures hanging underneath the shelf so stay tuned for the finished project!
