    Craigslist find:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think I want to paint it soft gold, with chocolate trim with an inner trim of red on the windows.
    I need to put hardware cloth on the windows, and take off the bottom wiring and add on to my larger run and incorporate it into the whole system

    Do I dare add window boxes? It looks sort of cottage style.

    Definitely has possibilities! If the wood is in good shape and the price was right, then you did good!

    The wood is in great shape- it's heavy, solid as a rock! I got it for $50.00- I don't think I could have purchased the materials for that.

    [​IMG] GREAT DEAL! Yes, I vote for flower boxes. Be sure to post pictures when you get it finished. I bet it will look really cute!
