Make-Over Monday

Make-Over Monday

Finally! I got a make-over on my garage door. I hated the big blank white slate on the front of my garage and wanted a new carriage door from the day we moved in. Hubby couldn't get past the fact the the existing door was in excellant shape and couldn't see spending $1,200 to replace it. Men!!! So short sighted! Then one day he came home and told me about a new product the company he works for was making. Not only that, but they were having a fair to introduce the new product and offering it to employees at 1/2 the cost. It's vinyl window frames with dark smoked plexi-glass behind to look like real windows. Just measure and screw in place.

Here is a link to the web-site for the windows Just in case anyone is interested -



The garage looked so good I decided it was about time to get a better looking vehicle to park in the drive.

Before
the Plymouth Voyager I bought used and have been driving for 10 years now. The air had quit, the wipers only worked when they wanted to, the passenger power window died,  there was a power steering leak, and every time I closed the sliding doors pieces of rust fell off. It was definately time for it to go.

After
The Nissan Cube
 Brand new and under $20,000. The best, of coarse, is the mileage. It's rated for 27 city but so far we are getting almost 34 mpg city. After nearly 18 yrs of mini vans this is soooo much fun to drive.
