An Old Door Design

Pin It I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars. Pin It   The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale.

Space theme, a new idea for home decorations

    It’s been 45 years since the infamous Apollo 13 mission.
