First Hidden Treasure

We found our first hidden treasure! So, it's not an antique diamond ring or a 90 year old U.S. Bond, but it was fun to find nonetheless! Some of the casing around these old doors need to be replaced as they are pretty munched up....a lot more than a little sanding could fix. While Dustin was replacing the casing around one of the doors in the entryway....

He found this in the wall above the door.....


  1. Frame it and place it next to the door. Way cool.

  2. I envision someone somewhere thinking, "I wonder where I put that key?" Love, Aunt Sue

  3. Mom, HILARIOUS!

    Dusta and Steph - way to go. Can't wait to see more!

  4. Hi Stephanie,

    My name is Libby and I'm working on behalf of the visual editor for HouseLogic. HouseLogic's an editorial site published by the National Association of Realtors geared towards homeowners.

    We love this key you found in your wall and would love to feature that image in an upcoming HouseLogic slideshow about unusual finds during a remodel.

    Is that something you'd allow? You/your blog would be given full credit for the image, and we’d include a link to your site if you’d like.

    If you’re interested, let me know and I'll send over our image terms (as per our legal department) for you to look over.
