Hardware Jackpot...

  During our trip home to Michigan this past week I found a lot of great deals {so many exciting new blog posts to come on all of the other great finds} But one of the best deals I got was on cabinet hardware. I hit the HARDWARE JACKPOT!! I wasn't even looking for hardware, but someone I know told me about the amazing deal & I couldn't resist. If you wanted to try finding hardware samples like this, you could try going to builder supply stores & see if they have any old sample boards they want to sell. I have not counted exactly how much hardware I received, but you can see for yourself....

I got all this hardware for $20!! Can you believe that?! Good thing we brought the Jeep to Michigan so we had enough room to bring this all home.. here it is sitting in my garage until I find a place to store it all.

I am so excited to have all this hardware on hand for future projects to come, I am sure you will see most of this new hardware in blog posts to come!

Here is the back of the boards. As you can see the hardware simply screws off the board for quick access to each piece of hardware.

Here are a few quick pictures of some of the hardware...

Our trip home to Michigan to see our families was very fun & it was wonderful to see everyone, but it feels so great to be home today being lazy before the work week starts tomorrow. Here is a picture of my husband & I while we were home this past week...

I hope you all had a wonderful week last week & a great weekend as well!! Thanks for stopping by to see my {Hardware Jackpot} I was excited to share my great deal with all of you!!

  19. Absolutely LOVE this idea of getting hardware, I will be checking out trying to get some from our hardware/cabinet makers around Statesboro, GA, since you gave me an idea to add to my new project! Once I get it down to the way I like it, I will send you a pic.
    I would like to suggest that if you need ceramic tiles, or other types of tiles, check out tile stores. I work next door to a tile store, and I found that they just throw out the samples into the dumpster behind our office...NEEDLESS to SAY, I went dumpster diving for them.
    Don't know how to blog or tweet, LOLOLOLOL!!! Thanks again!!! LuLu
