Try It Tuesday~pickin' in Indiana!!

Hi guys!
We had such a great time in Indiana with our kids. We lucked into
a pickin' opportunity and, if you know me, I was all in. 

A view of the things I got but let me back up and start at the beginning~

This is the house that is set to be torn down.  The doors were open and all
 were welcomed.  We had permission, from the owners, that we could
take what we wanted.  The house had pretty well been picked over
 but what is one persons trash is another persons treasure.  So true!!!
The old chairs, with a wicker bottom in them, caught my eye first.
They are pretty rough but will look great, just like they are, with a succulent
on them. That's the plan~
The door was taken from under a stairwell.  It is much smaller
 than a normal sized door.  It was love at first sight!!

We got three sets of black porcelain doorknobs and some hardware.
I will do something really neat with these.  They have paint on them
but other than that no chips.
 The first thing I did (like last week) cleaned the door and
 painted it  with chalk paint by DecoArt.  After each coat
the door was sanded down.
The old coat hook was also picked from the old house. It fir perfect
on the old door.  I painted one of the pallet signs, by
Clear Scraps, to make a sign for the door.

A stencil from the Farmhouse Collection was used to create the
"Amazing Grace" sign.
This is how I used these picks from Indiana~
